KATY, Texas --The story behind dramatic video of a child being saved from a hot car in Texas is becoming clearer.

People rushed to help Monday when they saw the child in the SUV. Several news outlets, including CNN, picked up the story that shoppers heard the children in the hot car and that the mother apparently said she had left them there only temporarily so she could get a haircut.

But according to KHOU, surveillance video shows the mother when into a postal store next door to the hair salon with her children. After leaving the store, she says she accidentally locked her keys and the kids in the car and acted immediately to get them out.

The mother told KHOU she called her insurance company but was told it would take two hours to send someone to open the doors.

Surveillance shows she returned to the postal store to call for help and returned five minutes later to shoppers smashing on the window so the mother could crawl in and get them out.

“It’s not like she left the kids in the car,” Azir Brohi, the owner of the postal store, told KHOU. “It’s not like she did something wrong. She was screaming trying to get the little girl to open the door.”

The witness who shot the cellphone video and originally talked to KHOU denied the station’s request for a second interview.

    I used to like the stories this network posted, now it just seems like they don’t have anything to write about. Plus how can one expect these stories to be worth reading when they have spelling errors. The professionalism present is extremely questionable.

    Fox, why do you require us to download an app to watch your news videos? Greed is my first guess!

      Randy, I just went to play store and there are 250 FOX news apps….and all are free to user. So I suppose they use the apps as a reference as to how many people are watching it.
