BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (WESH) — Police officers in Boynton Beach were forced to smash a car window Monday to rescue a dog that was left inside a hot vehicle.
Officers said a person spotted the dog inside the car Monday morning and called police.
“The car was off and all the windows were up. It was easily 110 degrees inside that car,” police wrote in a Facebook post.
