Store Manager and Mother Saves Toddler

In Kansas, Sarah Oropeza, the manager of the Famous Footwear in Merriam, was finishing off a customer sale on Saturday when a co-worker ran into the store screaming for help - she had just found a little girl in a car. The mother-of-two said, 'The windows were totally rolled up, all the doors were locked. She was covered in sweat.” Oropeza added “When I looked in the back window, she was covered in sweat. She had pulled her hair back and sweat was just dripping.”

Oropeza then frantically tried to break into the car but couldn't until someone handed her a tire iron. Oropeza said “I was just praying, 'Break the window. She is going to die.'” Oropeza and a group of women then pulled the two-year-old girl from the car. Oropeza shared “Her shoes were wet, her socks were wet. She was so drenched in sweat. I just started crying.”

A police officer also went to buy diapers because there was no diaper bag in the car, while an ambulance arrived to attend to the toddler. The girl was fine and later picked up by her godmother. A couple--believed to be the child's aunt and uncle--eventually came looking for her and were charged with endangerment. Oropeza said “The only question they had for police was if insurance was going to pay to cover the window that we broke.”
