MELAKA: A two-year-old boy locked himself and his baby cousin in his aunt’s car for over half an hour on Jalan Hospital here, in a bid to protect his cousin from being “kidnapped”.

Car park attendant Nizam Mohd, 47 said the boy locked the door when his aunt got down from the car to pay her parking fee.

“In just a few seconds, the boy locked the car before the woman could rush back to her car.

“The boy was afraid that someone would snatch his cousin and decided to lock the car doors,” he said here on Tuesday (Jan 25).

Nizam said the baby’s mother started weeping after seeing her six-month-old son sweating.

“I made various attempts to open the door but was unsuccessful – and the boy refused to open the door,” he said.

Nizam said he decided to call the Fire and Rescue Department when the baby started crying and the mother became restless.

Melaka Fire and Rescue Department operations commander Mohd Iswandy Aripin said the two children were rescued at about 10am.

He said the rescue operation took about 32mins and the duo did not require any medical attention.
