Mother Sharma Murphy said that on her way to Market Basket supermarket on Friday, she stopped by the fire house to make sure her baby’s car seat was properly installed.

Less than an hour later, those firefighters helped rescue her 4-day-old baby, who was locked in her hot car.

A shopper called Leominster police after spotting a newborn alone inside a car. It was Sharma Murphy's silver Chevy Malibu.

Murphy said she was out for the first time with her newborn daughter, 4-day-old Katherine, and was nervous.

“I went, I bought it. Came right out and this lady just starts screaming at me. Screaming at me,” said Murphy.

Murphy said she brought her newborn inside with her to Market Basket and then returned to the car when Katherine fell asleep. She said that she ran back inside for two or three minutes to buy some baby formula.

“I went (in and) I bought it,” Murphy said. “(I) came right out and this lady just starts screaming at me.”

Police said the windows were rolled up.

“I believe she locked her keys in the car because they had to use the jimmy to get the baby out,” witness John Casey told WFXT.

According to WFXT meteorologists, the outside temperature was 84 degrees at the time.

Murphy said she didn’t want to wake her newborn.

“I thought, ‘OK, if I run in and run out...’ It was one of those things where she's gotta eat because I have nothing left for her and that's when everything happened and I'm like, oh my God,” Murphy said.

Katherine was taken to the hospital to be checked out. Her mother said he is fine.

The baby is currently in custody of DCF. No charges have been filed.

WDRB reported that the act began with a regular visitor. ABC News reported that her meal was about $6.

“(The customer) saw a dad in the van behind her,” Hunter Hostetler, an employee at the McDonald’s location, told WDRB. “He had, like, four kids in the car. He had a bunch of happy meals, two Quarter Pounders, a Big Mac meal and some other stuff. She was like, ‘I'm going to pay for the father behind me, and I want you to tell him Happy Father's Day.’”

The father’s order was $36.

In turn, that father paid for the order in the two cars behind him, and from 8:30 to midnight, 167 cars total continued to pay it forward.

“It was very heartwarming,” Hostetler, 19, told ABC News. “The last customer who came through even asked if there was another car and I said, ‘Ma’am, I’m sorry, you’re our last customer for the night. We’re closing.’”

ABC News reported that some customers were a few dollars short when paying it forward, but Hostetler and his co-worker, Jessica Wells, chipped in to pay the difference.

Hostetler noted that many customers paid it forward without regard for the cost of the orders behind them.

Frank Ward, the owner of the McDonald’s location, responded to what he called an “act of kindness” with a statement to ABC News: “McDonald’s believes in supporting the local communities in which we operate. I was proud to experience the Scottsburg community come together in this act of kindness under the Golden Arches.”

On Tuesday, Gregory A. Hoch, 37, allegedly stole a surveyor’s van after the man got out of it to get his tools, the Lakeland Police Department wrote on Facebook.

After that, Hoch headed straight to the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport, where his plan was to “make the pilot take him somewhere,” according to police.

Hoch ran through a business, entered the airfield and gained access to the runway, police said.

Hoch’s plan was soaring high until he came tumbling down.

Just as he was about to open the plane’s door, Lt. Eric Harper from the Lakeland Police Department pulled Hoch back onto the runway.

Surprisingly, nobody was injured during this incident.

Hoch was charged with multiple charges including grand theft and burglary to an occupied conveyance. 

FBI to police in Texas: Bigfoot is ‘most wanted fugitive’

Round Rock, Texas, Police Chief Allen Banks has received a special message from the Federal Bureau of Investigation: the Hairy Man seen galavanting around the Round Rock trails is a “most wanted fugitive.”

>> Read more trending news

According to the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, which has been keeping residents abreast of recent Bigfoot sightings, Round Rock’s top police official got an email from the FBI stating it has added Bigfoot to the “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” List.

The Bureau is offering a reward of up to $500,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of the giant, hair-covered being, according to the Parks and Rec Department.

Bigfoot was last seen on the Brushy Creek Regional Trail and made “loud, demonic-like howl sounds,” according to the FBI most-wanted poster.

Recently, some Round Rock teens and other area families have shared videos of their search for the enormous quadruped.

According to the recently released FBI poster, Bigfoot is a “menace to wildlife” and is accused of “destruction of government property” and “terrorism of campers.”

The creature is allegedly “armed and dangerous,” according to the FBI message received by police.

But is the Round Rock Hairy Man really that ferocious and ill-willed? So far, there has been no evidence of destruction or vandalism by the big man on the trails. Not even any food or sign of a campsite has been found. Just a few oversized footprints in the mud are the only evidence left behind by the beast.

The Hairy Man seems to be abiding by the “Leave No Trace” camping principles: respect wildlife, take out what you bring in, and leave what you find.

So is this creature Round Rock’s Hairy Man legend of yore come to life? Is it Bigfoot? Sasquatch? Or is it just Harry trying to find his Hendersons?

9-foot-6, 500-pound sturgeon found at Oregon dam likely 60-70 years old

A 9-foot-6 inch sturgeon weighing in at 500 pounds was found pinned Thursday in a radial gate at the Keno Dam in Oregon, according to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The fish had sustained a head injury at some point and was dead when officials found it.

It is believed to have been one of 221 sturgeons moved in 1958 from the Columbia River to Klamath County. At the time, officials were attempting to create fisheries in the area. However, the fish didn’t take, and officials found no evidence that they were able to spawn in their new homes.

“It’s thought the female sturgeon was from the original transplant group,” ODFW said in a Facebook post. “Most of those fish would be from 60 to 70 years old now, with the potential to live nearly 100 years.”

District fish biologist Bill Tinniswood said the fish, a female sturgeon, had millions of eggs upon her death. Officials believe that the lack of available male sturgeons to spawn with left the eggs to build up.

Two anglers have reported seeing sturgeons on the Upper Klamath Lake this year, Tinniswood said.

Man 'proposes' to girl after proposing to her mother

Grant Tribbett planned the perfect day to propose to his girlfriend. After breakfast at their local Cracker Barrel in Fishers, Indiana, Tribbett took his girlfriend, Cassandra Reschar, and Adrianna, her daughter from a previous relationship, to a bridge inside Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve.

Hiding in the woods was Tribbett’s friend and photographer, Mandi Gilliland, who he asked the previous day to arrive 30 minutes before the couple would get there.

After getting to the spot on the bridge, Tribbett got down on one knee and asked Reschar to marry him, to which she said “yes.” But he wasn’t done, as he had another surprise in store for his now-fiancée and her daughter.

Tribbett told ABC News that after Reschar said yes, he got down on one knee again with a heart-shaped necklace and asked Adrianna if he could be her dad. He told the 5-year-old that he promised to always love and protect her, and she said “yes” to his proposal.

Reschar said that she started shaking and crying, and it wasn’t the cute kind of crying.

“It just took my breath away,” she said. “It’s been a long time coming for her. It’s just every prayer that I’ve had since she was little that I could find someone who loved her just as much (as me).”

Tribbett said he knew he would be committing to fatherhood when proposing to Reschar, so it was important for him to include Adrianna.

“So what better way to ask the love of my life to marry me than to ask her beloved daughter to get the honor to be her daddy?” he said. “[I’m] also excited to be a father to Adrianna and (to) help raise her.”

The couple plans to exchange vows in a barn wedding in December.

Alexander Shae Johnson, 22, was arrested Thursday night.

Passenger Kathleen Duddleston entered the TSA checkpoint and was stopped for additional screening, police said.

While she was patted down, Duddleston told TSA security officer Michelle Metz that she couldn’t see her luggage, so Metz moved her closer.

Duddleston complained again that she couldn’t see her bag, and Johnson moved slightly.

After the pat down, Duddleston reached for her bag and could not find her money, police said. She said she noticed a bulge in Johnson’s left front shirt pocket. Duddleston asked Johnson if that was her money, and he said he got the money from the bank, police said.

The woman complained to Metz that she believed Johnson stole money from her. Metz contacted her supervisor.

Duddleston has been charged with third-degree grand theft.

TSA said in a statement to WFTV:

TSA has a zero tolerance for misconduct in the workplace. The TSA immediately reported the allegation to OPD and we aggressively investigated the incident with our law enforcement partner. TSA officers represent a professional and honorable workforce that is trained to treat passengers and their personal belongings with care and respect. No exceptions will be tolerated. We immediately ended the federal career of this individual.
