Lisa Walling and her husband, Chase, didn’t hesitate. Parents themselves, Chase and Lisa tried to get the little girl to unlock the door.

“He came over there, and we’re like, ‘It’s OK, we’re nice, we’re nice. Can you unlock the door?’ Thankfully, she’s five and could understand us,” Lisa Walling said.

Fortunately, the little girl listened and unlocked the door.

“As soon as she opened it, I give her a big old hug, and she is drenched in sweat. It was awful,” Lisa said.

Staff at the Kroger helped keep the girl cool and gave her water while the Wallings called police. About that time, the little girl’s 60-year-old grandmother came looking for her.
