Texas shoppers took matters into their own hands after noticing two children left in a hot Jeep Monday afternoon.
According to KHOU, they tried to smash open the windows when realizing the small boy and girl were inside crying.
The children's mother allegedly told witnesses she left them there temporarily so that she could get a haircut.
The mother, 28-year-old Violeta Chavez, was taken into police custody.
