Dublin Fire Brigade rescue mother and baby from locked bedroom as pot boils on the stove

Every parent's worst nightmare.

Dublin Fire Brigade services from Kilbarrack rescued a mother and baby from a bedroom after the lock on the door failed.

Adding to the drama was the detail that a pot was boiling on the stove downstairs.

In a tweet on their official Twitter page the DFB noted that they "recommend locksmiths for most lock in/out cases," but that they are prepared to help out in emergencies such as this one.

"When there is a real and immediate risk to safety we will of course help out," the tweet noted.

A tweet captured the moment that two firemen managed to rescue mammy and baby through the window. A major relief.
