A group of Florida inmates came to the rescue on Thursday, after a father accidentally locked his baby daughter in his car.
The inmates were working nearby when they saw the commotion and rushed to help, reports 7 News.
After learning the father had placed his one-year-old daughter into her car seat and accidentally tossed his keys in and shut the door, the inmates put their skills to good use.

The baby's father had intended to break a window, as he couldn't afford a locksmith, but the jumpsuit-clad inmates quickly stepped in to save the day.
Video shows a crowd of inmates, watched by their sheriff, prying the door open enough for one of them to stick a coat hanger through the window and unlock the car.
"There's only a very small percentage of those criminals out there that want to fight us and want to attack us - but a lot of them, like these individuals, they know they made bad mistakes, bad choices but they want to do the right thing in life," Sheriff Chris Nocco told WPEC-TV.
The baby was rescued safe and sound, and her mother thanked everyone involved.
She wants to find out the prisoners identities so she can contribute to their commissary accounts.
