HACKENSACK, N.J. – A two-year-old girl is alive thanks to a quick-thinking Costco manager who called police after finding the child locked inside a hot minivan in the parking lot.

The video shows a two-year-old girl sitting inside a parked minivan at a Costco parking lot while her mother finishes shopping. The scared little girl was “sweating profusely” and crying in the car seat, according to WPIX.

Officers smashed a vehicle window to open the minivan door. The video shows them picking up and hugging the girl.

The officers started running the minivan’s license plate to find the parents when the mother, Chaeyoung Lim-Kim, with another child on a shopping cart, walked up with a cart full of groceries.

Officer: “Is this your kid?”
Mother: “Sorry.”
Officer: “No ‘sorry!’ She could have died! I’ll hold her. I’ll hold her.”

The mother was arrested and charged with child endangerment and released on her own recognizance. The two-year-old was treated at a local hospital is now in the custody of her father.
