An eight-year-old boy in the US is getting applause for playing a heroic act. The little boy Chance not only failed a kidnapper’s efforts by getting himself freed but also saved his 10-year-old sister Skyler from the kidnapper’s grip.
According to the Middletown Division Police, on April 25, a heroic addict Indian man, identified as Dalvir Singh, jumped into an elderly woman’s car with grandchildren inside and took off the vehicle.
Police said that the little boy quickly opened the door to escape and his sister Skyler too started to jump out but Singh grabbed the hoodie of the girl not allowing her to leave. However Chance grabbed hold of her and pulled his sister away from Singh. Afterwards both tumbled out of the vehicle as it was moving.
The elderly lady, 69-year-old Nita Coburn could not realize that her grandchildren were able to escape because they flew out of the passenger side. Coburn was still chasing the car by that time on the driver’s side. She continued her struggle with Singh and opened the driver’s door to regain control of the vehicle but Singh slammed the door shut again and locked the door.
The police added that Coburn hung onto the vehicle panicking because she thought the children were still inside. Singh dragged her until he accelerate the vehicle at high speed and forced her to let go.
When the police was informed that a car with children inside had been stolen at a medical center in Middletown, Ohio and that an elderly lady was injured, they chased 24-year-old Singh and took him into custody.
The Middletown Police Chief Rodney Muterspaw lauded the heroic attempt by Chance to save himself and his sister from the kidnapping attempt.
“This little guy is a hero. No question. He pulled his sister out of the car with no concern for his own safety. That is incredible at his age. The police will be recognizing the little boy’s quick action to not only get out of the vehicle but also making sure that his sister got out with him,” he added.
