Locked in Car, Toddler Can Only Grin
Someone's having fun.   (Facebook)

If Kirsty Green had to guess, she'd say her 14-month-old son Brandon is likely to be a mischievous adult. That's based on a scary but hilarious incident in a grocery store parking lot in Bude, England, last weekend. After mistakenly locking her car keys in her trunk, Green watched as Brandon, grinning in the front seat, pushed a button to lock the doors, trapping him inside, reports CBS News.

His grin never faded as local firefighters arrived and set to work to free him. "Just as much as they were keeping Brandon entertained, he was equally making them laugh," Green tells the Mirror. They eventually broke a window when Green's "cheeky monkey" put a coin in his mouth, but the toddler, who was uninjured, kept on grinning, says Green. "He thought it was great fun."
