A Domino’s pizza driver has been confronted by an angry woman for leaving her baby in the car while she made a delivery.
Video of the incident was aired on 7News and showed a female Domino’s delivery driver in Perth returning to her car after dropping off an order to find a passer-by had confiscated her keys.
The woman said she was concerned the driver had left her baby alone in the car while she made the delivery. She confiscated the car keys and called the police to handle the matter.
“Someone could’ve taken your baby... anybody could’ve got in your car and driven away with your baby,” the woman could be heard telling the driver.
The driver’s employer told 7News she had completed her shift when the incident occurred and her partner, who also works at the same store, had just handed over childcare duties while she made her final delivery for the day.
The woman who confronted the driver told 7News she was concerned for the child in the car and the mother’s situation. Police reportedly gave the driver a warning.
Domino’s says no passengers allowed in delivery cars
A Domino’s spokesperson told Yahoo News Australia they were investigating the matter.
“While we support working parents and families through flexible work arrangements and government benefits, we do not condone ever leaving a child in a car unattended,” the spokesperson said.
“This is the law and our drivers, regardless of their circumstances, are not above the law.”
The Domino’s spokesperson said it was the first complaint it had received of this nature.
They added the company would look to work with the employee in question to understand their circumstances, educate them on the seriousness of the situation and remind all employees no passenger –child or not – was to accompany them on delivery unless they were a Domino’s employee.
