    TASER Device Helps Save Toddler From Locked Car
    Thursday April 10, 4:58 pm ET
    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 10, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- TASER International, Inc. (NasdaqGS:TASR - News), a market leader in advanced electronic control devices (ECDs) released the following NEWS ALERT:


    According to a report from KIRO TV in Seattle, WA, a Port Angeles Police Officer used a TASER(r) Electronic Control Device (ECD) to help a two-year boy unlock his mother's car after she accidentally left her keys inside.
    Port Angeles Police Officer Glenn Wood, who assisted the mother, realized that there was no practical way to unlock the door.

    Wood used the TASER ECD's laser to distract the toddler and lead him to one of the doors.

    As reported on KIRO-TV, Wood said, ``I have four kids and I know that a 2-year-old loose in the car is as good as a trunk monkey if you can just figure out how to motivate him to do what you want.'' Wood yelled, ``Get the dot!'' the toddler began to follow the laser. Eventually, Wood was able to lead the boy to the door lock with the laser dot. On the fourth attempt, the toddler finally hit the unlock button.

    Good thinking, but with a kid's life on the line I think I'd have just smashed the window and let the careless woman pay for her mistake.

    Well especialy if the car isnt running or moveing then I dont figure the kids life is exactly in imenent danger. Sure you can leave them in there for days or anything but takeing a few extra minutes to solve the problem without breaking anything seems like the better idea to me, especialy since he would have had to figure some way to get the kid to do what he wanted to get him away from the window he was going to break or else he would have been sending shards of broken glass flying into the kids face and the natural reaction of the kid is most likely gonna be to stand at the window and watch the cop as he smashes it in toward him.
