US media report that Tori Castillo, 39, is facing child abuse charges and the children are now with their father.

Onlookers in the car park instructed the five-year-old on how to open the boot from the inside, reports say.

Passersby had noticed the car shaking and noise coming from inside where it was parked outside a Walmart.

The incident happened on Thursday in Riverdale, Utah. It is not clear how long the children were in the boot.
