Authorities in Oakland, California, were in for quite the surprise when they responded to a report of what appeared to be a baby trapped in a car, police said. Emergency personnel smashed the car window and forced their way into the vehicle on Monday, only to find a lifelike doll sitting in the car seat, Officer Johnna Watson of the Oakland Police Department told ABC News. "Although this incident did not involve a baby or small child, it was unknown at the time," Watson said. "And first responders' number one priority is to ensure ... safety." "Fortunately, it was not a baby or small child," Watson said. "We encourage anyone who believes there is a dangerous situation such as this incident to contact emergency personnel so we can make that determination."
