A fast-acting 3-year-old came to an elderly mans rescue in Tennessee after he spotted the man trapped inside a hot car as temperatures inside the vehicle reached over 120 degrees.
While waiting for his wife to come back from an event at the Vestal Baptist Church in Knoxville last Saturday, Bob King, 68, found himself trapped in his car after the doors automatically locked.
Weve been having trouble with the door on this car since we bought it, King told ABC News.
After numerous cancer treatments and having suffered from two strokes in the past six months, Bob King was described as in very bad shape and could barely see anything by his wife, Jenny King.
He frantically grabbed the car door, but was too weak to push it open. King panicked.
Without a car key, he couldnt turn the air conditioning on. It was 91 degrees outside that day -- and the temperature inside the car had reached over 120 degrees.
Thats when King spotted 3-year-old Keith Williams walking past the car. King knocked on the car window repeatedly and Keith stopped.
I hollered at him and he just looked at me kind of funny and I said Get help, get help, King said.
Coincidentally, Keiths mother, Jessie Williams, had educated him about hot car safety just days before this happened.

damn. That is too close!
Then leave it cracked open. Somebody get these folks a systems analyst.
Well, 68 and in poor health.
Break the stinking window!!
For goodness sake, the guy was 68 and that is not too old to know how to act.
Systems Analysts are on the way!! And they work cheap too!
he sounds like he was too fragile. One needs a fair amount of English in the hit to break a window.
The article said he was too weak to open the door. How would he break the window?
Every auto should carry a spring-loaded window punch.
I always carry a stick of dynamite in the car in case the windows n locks jam
I’m unaware of any car that you cannot unlock from the inside - unless you’re in the back of a police cruiser or have bizarrely decided to have child locks put on every door of your car.
Well, when the Baby Boomers were the offical media useful idiots, 60 was the new 30. Now that the Boomers don’t vote so liberal anymore, they’ve shifted to the Millenials as the new socialist voter block, so you are now elderly you see, according to the Holy Ones in the priestly robes.
Three year old children are wandering around on the sidewalk alone?
Tennessee 3-year-olds are awesome. Davy Crockett killed himself a bear when he was only 3. This kid saved a man’s life when he was 3.
I’ll bet the car is a GM product.
Lol. Exactly what I was thinking! Dang.
Or a gun... Shoot the dang window out. /s
“68 is ‘elderly?”
Maybe to Yazhou Sun, Editorial Intern at ABC News, 68 is elderly.
In the words of a great thinker, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
“68 is “elderly”?” Got my attention too. I’m a couple months from there. There is different elderly for sure.
Couple weeks ago I pulled 20 4” round wooden fence posts & 4 4x6 square posts stuck 3’ in the ground, out of the ground, by hand. Not saying I wasn’t sore.
(the 4x6x8’ were pretty scary, had me huffin & puffin good)
