First responders in Boston rushed to help a dog that was found locked inside a hot car for over an hour and a half.
According to reports, Boston police received numerous calls on Aug. 26 about a dog in a parked car outside of a store, locked inside in the sweltering heat. When authorities arrived, a crowd of concerned people were gathered around the vehicle.
Firefighters opened the car and rescued the dog, which police estimated had been inside for at least 90 minutes.
