A black Labrador named Thor was rescued from a hot car Sunday afternoon near Golden Gate Park, the San Francisco Police Department said.

Officers responded at 1:22 p.m. on reports of a dog being locked in an overheating vehicle on Fulton at Parson Streets, according to police.

Police said officers found a door to the vehicle unlocked, and while the windows were cracked a bit, the car was hot inside.
