PUTRAJAYA: A four-month-old baby boy was rescued by the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Fire and Rescue Department after he was locked in his mother’s car at Jalan Deluxe, Cyberjaya.

In the 2.45pm incident, the baby was left with another child by the mother in a Perodua Alza. The mother had gone to a shop nearby.
