Shadow Lantry and her family recently paid a visit to the courthouse in Pasco County, Florida. Her partner tied their daughter into the car seat in their Chevy Tahoe, then threw the keys towards the front.
When Shadow closed the doors they realised the SUV had locked itself suddenly.
Shadow wasn’t able to afford a locksmith, her partner planned on smashing the passenger seat window to retrieve the baby. However just before he went to break the glass, a group of heroes came to their rescue.
Prison offenders on work release were repairing the medians outside the courthouse once they discovered the baby was trapped.
Wearing black-and-white striped prison uniforms, the men came over to the SUV and used a clothes hanger to break the lock.
Thankfully, it was a only 56 degrees outside, so the toddler appeared comfortable during the ordeal, and content with her pacifier.
Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said it’s not often that an inmate is allowed to use his or her “skill set” to break into someone else’s vehicle.
“There’s only a very small percentage of those criminals out there that want to fight us and want to attack us,” he explains, “but a lot of them, like these individuals, they know they made bad mistakes, bad choices, but they want to do the right thing in life.”
As a comment on facebook says, “Compassion comes from all walks of life. Thank you to these amazing strangers for saving that sweet baby girl.”
Shadow stood back and watched the inmates as she recorded the scene which she shared on Facebook.
Take a look at the video below which went viral after being shared online:
