Man Allegedly Left His Daughter In A Locked Car For 30 Minutes At Cheras Hypermarket
He only appeared to get to his car after the hypermarket's management made public announcements about the situation.
Shoppers had a heart-stopping moment yesterday, 16 January, when they discovered a young girl alone in a locked car at a hypermarket in Cheras
The car was reportedly parked near the entrance of the hypermarket.
According to a Facebook community page, the child was
"helplessly crying and sweating" when shoppers noticed she was left alone in the car "under the hot sun", with the doors locked and windows shut
It was alleged that the girl was locked in the car for about 30 minutes before a man - believed to be her father - appeared to get to his car. When he realised that he was being confronted, he "hurriedly got into his car and drove off".
The post has been shared widely since it was posted yesterday, with some netizens suggesting that those at the scene should have broken the window to save the girl
Although the child seemed to be mostly unharmed from the ordeal, some noted that a police report should be filed against the father for neglecting and endangering his daughter
