Florida Inmates Break Into Car to Save Baby Locked Inside

The one-year-old child was trapped inside the auto, with the keys inside.

Lantry told CNN affiliate WFTS-TV the incident began when the child's father strapped the girl into a auto seat in the back of the SUV and tossed the keys to the front seat.

Deputies from the Pasco County Sheriff's office arrived to find both parents attempting to break into their vehicle.

A group of inmates were reportedly repairing medians nearby, under police supervision, when they noticed the incident.

That is when the prisoners, in their black and white uniforms, offered to help, and worked in a team to pry open the front door just enough for one inmate to use a coat hanger to push a button that unlocked the 4x4's door.

Sergio Ramos finally breaks record he has sought for his entire career
MF Toni Kroos , 6 - Provided an excellent driven cross for Casemiro's header and very prominent as Madrid ran the midfield. Sergio Ramos really can't complain about his reputation, it's well earned.

The whole endeavour took about two minutes, and ended with the group cheering.

Lantry recorded a video of the rescue and posted it to her Facebook page, where it's since been shared thousands of times. "I respect all y'all", Lantry says in the video.

Five low-risk offenders immediately jumped into action to rescue the baby.

"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", Nocco told ABC.
