Florida Woman Saves Baby She Found Sitting in Hot Car

Volusia County Corrections

The temperature outside was reportedly 93 degrees, the window was up, and the auto was off.

Sheriff Mike Chitwood recorded a video to publicly thank Jessica Kaiser for her role in saving an eight-month-old baby from a hot vehicle.

In a post on the sheriff's office page, the law enforcement official is sitting in the driver's seat of his patrol auto and talks to the camera, telling followers about a harrowing incident that went down in Orange City on Tuesday. About 24 minutes passed between Kaisers call and Burgess returning to her auto from a store, deputies said.

The sheriff gave a special thank you to a woman named Jessica Kaiser who noticed the baby was alone in the auto.

Deputies say Burgess child was locked inside her vehicle for only a few minutes before another woman, Jessica Kaiser, saw the child, was able to open an unlocked door to filter in cooler air, and called 911.

The sheriff's office said that deputies found the boy was in in "good health and good spirits", and then spent several minutes looking for the adult responsible for the baby.

First responders arrived minutes after the 911 call was made.

Meagan Burgess was charged with child neglect.

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood took the time to publicly thank a good Samaritan on Facebook Wednesday.

"I work in the emergency department, like I'm a nurse and I hear these stories", Burgess says in the video.

"We avoided a disaster", Chitwood says in the video.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said in a news release the 8-month old boy was found around 3:15 p.m.in Orange City, located about 30 miles north of Orlando.

Burgess told investigators she thought she'd dropped all of her kids off before running errands.

"We can't hammer home enough how important it is for parents to stay on top of their game and understand that that little life is depending on you".

A Volusia County Sheriff's Office spokesperson told ABC News that the eight-month-old boy 'was in good health and good spirits, ' when authorities arrived and that he hadn't been in the auto for long before he was found. "We opened the door to at least get air into the auto!"

The group says 27 children have died this year from heat stroke, compared to 43 last year.
