The crew of the work-release prisoners offer to break into the vehicle to rescue a baby after a Florida father accidentally locked his child in.

“Thank God for the criminals in this world.”

That is the sentiment of a grateful mother, after a group of work-release prisoners helped Florida couple who might have accidentally locked their baby in an SUV.

The mother of the baby, Shade Lantry, posted a video on her Facebook page with the heroic deed.

The incident began after the baby was accidentally locked in the car at the West Pasco Judicial Center in New Port Richey, Fla. The parents could not afford a locksmith and the father is intended to the breaking of a window, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kevin Doll told WFLA-TV.

A few moments later, a crew of black-and-white-clad prisoners working in the neighborhood offered to help the couple. They were able to carefully open the door just enough for one inmate to a coat hanger to push a button that unlocked the blue SUV.

Lantry said her 1-year-old child “who was happy” during the trial. The outside temperature was about 56 degrees Fahrenheit.
