Hot cars are an important issue during the hottest months of the summer. As a result, police officers, always keep an eye on them and try to rescue babies (and puppies) whose parents have forgotten about them in a temperature that can only prove fatal.
Sometimes, however, art can be so deceiving that broken windows save nothing but a …baby doll. Yeap, you read that right. A baby doll!
A police officer, Lt. Jason Short, saw an infant in a hot car parked in a Walmart parking. In fact, the “infant,” according to the police photographs, was also wrapped in a cloth. Lt. Short had to take action and broke the car window:
“It was draped with a light blanket, and I could see little feet out with the non-soled shoes and a bottle of milk,” Short says.
Using his baton, Short smashed the window and breathed into a “dead and lifeless” body, as he describes the baby doll. When he put his finger into the “baby’s” mouth, it was all resistance and realized he was just looking at a doll.
Carolyne Seiffert, the baby doll owner owns about forty dolls to cope with the loss of her son. As she confesses, people used to laugh at her collection but, as she says, “you can’t know how people choose to deal with their losses in life.”
Also, this is not a collection to laugh at keeping in mind that just the doll that was in her smashed car is valued at more than $2,000.
The police officer offered to pay for the damage and Seiffert placed a bumper sticker on her window to help people understand that the doll is not a real baby. “I would never assume that it’s a doll,” she said. “I would always assume that it’s a child. I would never do anything different,” she continues.
Well, yeah. To be completely honest, this is a great, realistic piece of art!
