But if that child happened to be wearing a football jersey belonging to the team you despise, would it change the way you react?
A video that appeared online this week shows a couple finding a toddler trapped in a car, only to walk away when they realize the kid is wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey.
The clip was shot outside the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia by Philadelphia Eagles supporters.
As the video opens, a man is heard saying: ‘Some a–hole left their kid in the car, man. Can you believe this f—ing sh–?’
A woman is heard on the phone to the police, assuring the group that the cops are on their way.
The man is heard saying he is about to smash the car window in order to get the child out. But as he prepares to do so, he notices something.
‘Yo, that kid has got a Dallas shirt on,’ the man says.
The second man then says: ‘Woah. Ok. Let it die. F— it.’
The woman then adds: ‘Lets go to the casino.’
The group then walk away from the car as the clip finishes.
The video first appeared on LiveLeak.
By all means the clip appears to be a joke, however the makers have not come forward claiming it was meant to be a spoof.
So far this year, a total of 27 children have died of heatstroke after being left locked in hot cars.
The average number of U.S. child heatstroke fatalities per year since 1998 is 37.
