Child Protective Services is deciding Tuesday whether or not to punish one of its employees for accidentally locking a child in a hot car.
The woman put the 18-month old foster child in a car, then accidentally dropped they keys inside. She ran into the CPS building on Greenwood and grabbed a detective, who smashed out a window and pull the boy out.
When paramedics arrived, the baby's body temperature was already near 100 degrees. They immediately put him in an air-conditioned SUV and soaked him with water.
The boy is reportedly doing okay and is currently with CPS.
