Maryland Cop Found Child’s Father Lying in the Grass
Darryl Wormuth is a Prince George’s County, police corporal. Apart from catching bad guys and making sure the streets are safe, Wormuth also jumps in to save people in distress.
On Tuesday, the police officer became somewhat of a local hero after he saved a baby girl from inside an oven-hot vehicle.
According to Wormuth’s claims, before the infant was found, he was summoned to a nearby apartment complex after someone told the 911 operator that an unresponsive individual was lying in the grass.
The Maryland cop discovered the individual who appeared to be under the influence of narcotics. After helping the individual get up, he called for an ambulance.
However, according to Wormuth’s claims, even though the individual was on his way to the hospital, he couldn’t shake the feeling that perhaps he overlooked something.
Upon searching the suspect, Wormuth discovered his apartment and car keys. Still can’t shake the feeling, the Maryland cop went to check the suspect’s car, only to find a one-year-old infant strapped to a safety chair.
Wormuth declared that although the car’s window was rolled down, it was still quite hot inside. When he first approached the vehicle, the child appeared to be unconscious. He managed to get inside the vehicle, grab the child, and to take her to a cool spot.
The Maryland cop then called the apartment complex’s administrator who took the child in and gave her French fries, chicken nuggets, and a soft drink.
Wormuth said that he managed to get a hold of the child’s relatives. Furthermore, he confirmed that the man rushed to the hospital was her father.
