An 8-year-old who helped his older sister escape a potential kidnapper is being hailed a hero by Ohio police.
The children were traveling with their grandmother, 69-year-old Nita Coburn, on Thursday afternoon to the Atrium Medical Center. Coburn parked outside an entrance to the hospital and helped a friend toward the door. The children remained in the back seat, police said.
About 10 seconds after Coburn exited the car, 24-year-old Dalvir Singh is accused of entering and attempting to drive away with the children inside.
“The little boy opened the door to escape and the little girl started to jump out also but the man grabbed the hoodie of the little girl not allowing her to leave,” police wrote on Facebook Friday. “As she tried to get away, her little brother grabbed hold of her and pulled her away from the kidnapper and they both tumbled out of the vehicle as it was moving.”
