Who is Christian Pinilla? (Hero Texas cop rescues a baby from the hot car) Biography, Wiki
As temperatures crept into the lower 90s last Monday afternoon, a Duncanville, Texas, resident noticed a baby, strapped into a car seat in a Ford Explorer, alone, with the windows tightly closed.
The resident called Duncanville police, and Officer Christian Pinilla jumped into action, breaking into the vehicle and getting the crying baby to the air conditioning of his patrol car until paramedics could arrive.
The baby, covered in sweat and vomit, was not yet 1-year-old and is reported to be fine.
“All indications seem to point to this being a mistake caused by false assumptions and faulty communication about the infant’s well-being,” the police department said. Nevertheless, the department made a referral to Child Protective Services and a Dallas County Grand Jury to decide if civil or criminal action would be appropriate.
