Firies rescue baby

A GRAFTON woman who was hanging clothes out on the line yesterday was horrified to hear her door slam shut, locking her five-week-old baby inside on the woman’s bed.

Grafton station officer Mick Kearns said Grafton Fire Brigade responded to the call about 11.45am and found the mother in a state of distress upon arrival at the home.

“The baby cried when the door shut and then the sound stopped,” station officer Kearns said.

“She was worried the baby may have fallen face down off the bed, but it turns out it had just gone off to sleep.”

Firies used hydraulic equipment to break into the house within 15 minutes of the call and relieve a very worried mum.
