A photo of a baby inside a locked car outside a New Zealand supermarket has sparked outrage online.
The photo was taken outside Porirua Pak ‘n Save on Saturday morning, the New Zealand Herald reported.
The picture shows a newborn baby wrapped in a blanket in a car seat, with a note on the blanket saying to call if there are any issues and mobile phone number on the note.
A man who spoke to the Herald said he saw the baby and the note after he and his family parked next to it.
“It was written from the baby’s perspective, and it said, ‘My mum’s in doing the shopping, call her if I need anything’, and it had the cellphone number.
“We waited there for a little bit, wondering if the mum was just going to be two seconds and come back. And my wife said, ‘I’m not going in without someone being here with the baby’,” the man told the Herald.
The photo was posted on radio personality Polly Gillespie’s Facebook page and triggered many heated responses.
