    A deputy from the Walnut-Diamond Bar Sheriff's Station holds a 6-month-old baby after the child was rescued from a hot car on August 15, 2017.

    Police in Diamond Bar jumped into action and rescued a baby after the child accidentally became trapped in a hot car.

    The incident happened August 15 at a Target parking lot when the 6-month-old's mother placed the child in a baby carrier before accidentally locking the car and leaving the key inside, according to a press release from the Walnut-Diamond Bar Sheriff's Station.

    The mother immediately phoned for help, with deputies arriving three minutes after the call, according to Sgt. Rob Blunt, the station watch commander.

    When deputies arrived at the scene, baby was "sweating profusely" and its face was getting red. Immediately, the deputies broke a window and took the baby out of the car.

    The child was taken to the hospital after being checked by paramedics at the scene. Its condition is currently unknown.
