In a distressing trend, the summer of 2014 has seen case after case of a child dying after being locked inside of a car on a hot day. According to the Department of Geosciences at San Francisco State University, there have already been 18 of these deaths reported so far this year. This number is far too high, and far too preventable. If you have accidentally locked your car with your child left inside, you have no time to waste.
Call on your local emergency services and your local locksmith to respond to the situation.
As a 24/7 emergency locksmith, K&M Lock and Key has the necessary experience to deal with emergency lockout situations. Regardless of weather or time of day, our expert locksmiths are available to you. In a situation such as a one where a child has been accidentally locked in a car, it is important to keep a couple of things in mind. The first is to always stay with the car; do not leave it unattended or lose sight of your child. The second thing to consider is the inherent danger in trying to unlock or break into your car yourself. If you try to gain access through shattering a window, the broken glass could potentially cause injury to you or your child. If you try to pick the lock yourself before emergency services and your locksmith can arrive, you could end up doing more damage to it and making it difficult to gain entry. A professional locksmith can be trusted to pick the lock safely and quickly in emergency lockout situations, but be sure to call on emergency services as well to follow the best safety protocol.
