No, the situation was: wife opens up the car by touching the front passengere door, opens rear passenger door, throws purse containing the keys on the rear bench, positions child into the baby seat, shuts the rear passenger door, and the car locks itself with the purse and keys inside.
Tried to replicate it, never happened again. But she is not the only one, so from time to time it seems to have a glitch.
Now have a magnetic box with the skeleton key underneath the vehicle. Took 25 mins to get the window smashed (it actually did not smash, but could puncture a hole through big enough for an arm) and seriously risked the child's life.
