Rescuers smashed their way into the vehicle only to find that the alarmingly still baby in the back seat was merely a toy.
ABC News reports that emergency services were called to the scene in Oakland, California, on Monday.
"Fortunately, it was not a baby or small child," [Officer] Watson said. "We encourage anyone who believes there is a dangerous situation such as this incident to contact emergency personnel so we can make that determination." The police do not know why the doll was in the car seat, Watson said.
