An Indiana bill that would protect people who try and rescue animals from hot vehicles moves forward. The measure has passed a House committee.

The measure would offer immunity for someone trying to free a pet in an emergency situation as long as the situation meets certain guidelines like if the person first attempts to call 911.

Current state law prohibits cities from passing laws regarding these rescues.
