Emergency crews were dispatched to Child Protective Services just after 11 a.m. Monday after an employee said she accidentally locked an 18-month old child in her car.
The employee ran inside to get help. Bystanders were able to break out the front window and get the child out.
Corpus Christi Fire Department Captain Jeff Durrwachter said the boy's temperature was high even though he was only inside for a short amount of time.
The little boy was drinking water and doing fine after first responders got him out. He was released back to Child Protective Services.
