SPARTANBURG, S.C. – A Walmart employee rescued a baby from a hot car on Wednesday afternoon, according to WYFF.

According to police, a woman heard a crying baby after getting out of her car. She looked over to see a 6-month-old girl inside a Dodge van with all the windows rolled up.

The woman ran inside to find an employee while her husband waited by the van.

The store's co-manager, Bryan Hayes, struck the car window and freed the child, who he says was covered in sweat.

According to police, the infant was taken to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center and is expected to be OK. 

The NBC affiliate says, the father told police that he was supposed to drop the baby off at his mothers house while he and the baby's mother went on errands. Unfortunately, he forgot to take her out of the car. 

Police say that when the man came out and discovered it was his child, he rushed around asking about her.

The father said he didn't go to bed until 1 a.m. and was sleep deprived at the time.

No charges have been filed at this time.
