Agents of the Civil Guard detained a mother on Saturday who went to the Sueca barracks in Valencia at dawn. not finding his 10-year-old daughter inside the vehicle in which he had left her to go to a disco. Local Police agents had previously helped the girl, who called the Emergency telephone number to request help when she was wet and alone. The car was parked on a street in the municipality.

The guards calmed her down and offered her food and warm clothing. She was attended by an agent of the Local Police with training in psychology to “try to avoid, or minimize as much as possible, the consequences of this unpleasant experience,” according to municipal sources yesterday.
