A "frozen woman" sitting in a car on a frigid morning was rescued after police shattered a window to reach her. The mannequin used for medical purposes turned out to be fine.

Police in Hudson, New York received "a distraught call" at 8:30 a.m. Friday about an elderly woman "frozen to death" inside a vehicle, according to WCBS-TV.

"Police officers and the Greenport Rescue Squad rushed to the scene of the Subaru on City Hall Place," reported the Albany Times Union. "In the bitter cold, it appeared that woman seated in the passenger seat, wearing an oxygen mask, wasn't moving. The car had snow cover, indicating it may have been parked there overnight."

"A sergeant busted the rear passenger window and opened the door to discover the woman was a very realistic life-sized mannequin, though the clothes, glasses, teeth, shoes and skin blemishes were quite detailed, police said. It was even buckled in."

Police told WCBS-TV the car's owner was a sales manager for a medical training aids company and the mannequin was actually a CPR training device.

Hudson Police Chief Edward Moore told the Hudson Register-Star that the vehicle's owner swore at the police officers on the scene while confronting them about breaking into the vehicle. Moore, though, appeared to blame to the vehicle's owner for the incident.

"I think the common person would consider this alarming," Moore told the Register-Star.

Moore said everyone acted on good faith in attempting to help someone they believed was in danger, reported WCBS-TV.

"Just to clear the record, all citizens of Hudson should be put on notice that if you park your locked vehicle on the street on a sub-zero night with a life-size realistic mannequin seated in it… we will break your window," said Moore. "I commend everyone who responded with the intentions to help an elderly woman."
