A Winder toddler was hospitalized at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta after her neck became trapped in a car window.
Det. Sgt. Rachel Love of the Winder Police Department said the 21-month-old child was left unattended in the vehicle along with her three-year-old brother Friday afternoon while the mother was inside the residence for an undetermined amount of time.
When emergency personnel arrived at the scene, the child was unresponsive and was transported to the hospital.
Sunday afternoon, a representative with Children’s Healthcare said the child had improved considerably and is expected to make a full recovery.
“This is great news,” said Love who credits the child’s recovery to the quick actions taken by a neighbor in administering CPR and the fast response of the City of Winder Fire Rescue unit.
Love urged parents and caregivers to never leave children unattended in a vehicle.
