The image of 14-month-old Brandon Emery was posted on Facebook last Friday by his mother, Kirsty Green. The family had been at a Lidl store buying groceries in Bude, UK, CBS News reported

Green told the website that she placed her son in her car's backseat, put her keys in the trunk and unloaded her items.

"Not having a second thought about the keys I closed the boot [trunk] and could see that Brandon had climbed into the front of the car and was happily playing with the steering wheel," she said. 

Brandon soon smiled and locked himself in the car, Green stated.  

Bude Community Fire Station firefighters responded. Green said, "They did everything they could to not smash the window until Brandon decided to put [a coin] in his mouth."  

The window was smashed, with Brandon rescued and unharmed.

"Thank you to the amazing guys who rescued my cheeky monkey after locking himself in the car today at Bude Lidl!!" Green wrote on Facebook.
