We’re all well-aware that children below 12 and senior citizens are not allowed in public places due to the SOPs that have been implemented in Malaysia. This is because this group of people are more susceptible to the Covid-19 virus.
However, what this mother from Penang did might have taken the rule too far. Facebook user, Caiyun, posted about an incident that happened today, 26 August where she found a baby in a car park of a mall. She saw a couple of people beside the car peering into the vehicle and saw the baby crying inside.
Caiyun immediately took a picture and showed it to the security guard who told her to meet the customer service representative. When they went to the customer service, they were told they couldn’t make an announcement as the broadcast system was broken.
When they were hesitating whether or not they should call the police, two staff members who were notified of the situation came to check on the baby. After the security guard informed his superior, he reached out from the open rear seat window to open the lock and then rescued the baby. From the looks, the baby was a newborn and seemed thin.
After asking for some details, they took the baby into the mall and Caiyun left as well. After that, she called the duty manager who told her that the baby’s mother came after 15 minutes and explained that she had to bring her baby with her to the mall as there’s no one to take care of the baby at home. Due to SOPs, she was not allowed to bring her baby to the mall.
Reminder to parents to not leave your children in the car NO matter how long. It won’t take long for something unfortunate to happen or for your child to suffer a heatstroke!
