Woman Saves Pig Trapped in Scorching Hot Car
The pig was foaming at the mouth before officers broke the car's window.
A pig has a new lease on life after it was saved from being trapped in a scorching hot car.
The swine was locked inside a car in the parking lot of a shopping mall in Jacksonville, Florida. Miranda Lamendola came across the animal on a particularly warm day. The temperature was a record-breaking 101 degrees.
The 25-year-old said she called mall security, but officers couldn't help because they didn't have the proper authority to enter the car without the owner's permission.
So she called 911.
Lamendola said the poor pig was foaming at the mouth and shaking before police arrived. Eventually, an officer broke the window and freed the pig.
"I'm so happy I was able to help save the pig," she said.
Animal Care and Protective Services now has custody of the pig.
