A mother and father in Suffolk have thanked the fire service for rescuing their baby that was accidentally locked in their car.

Sian and Shane Stocker’s seven-month-old son Jake was locked in their Ford Mondeo in Ann Street, Ipswich, on Wednesday night.

Following a quick call to the fire service, firefighters rescued Jake in less than 15 minutes.

Mrs Stocker said: “We want to thank them for getting here so quickly. Because nothing was burning we thought they might take time to get here.

“Thank-you for getting Jake out so soon.”


  • Shame on you Ipswich Star for not explaining the events that led to Jake being locked in the car. Instead you let the reader come to their own conclusion which would more than likely be much bleaker than what actually took place. I suppose the imagination of some creates more of a shock factor than a simple key malfunction ey?

  • Thank you Richie, yes Jake was very upset at the time as was I, but he is fine now. Just to clarify, he ended up locked in the car due to a malfunction with the key. It was still in the ignition and the car was running however my husband got out of the car to get Jake out of the back and when he closed his driver door the whole car somehow locked. I have contacted Ford.
