MISSION – A Mission police officer was dispatched to help a baby in an international bridge.

Ashley Castillo and her husband took their 8-month old daughter to meet other family members in Reynosa.

All went well until, it came time to return to the U.S.

After about an hour and a half in line, Castillo says they started having car problems.

The air conditioner stopped working and the car was overheating.

Castillo says the heat was unbearable and it was taking a toll on her 8-month-old.

"I was just worried about my daughter cause you know there's so many stories that we hear of, like children being in the car and that stuff happens – I didn't want that for her,” said Castillo.

The couple decided to call 9-1-1 for help.

The responding Mission police officer, Santiago Silva, was called in to avoid tragedy for this baby.
