AMAZING VIDEO: Washington Siblings Help Stop Younger Brother’s Kidnapping

It may have seemed like easy pickings to this scumbag kidnapper: a toddler playing in a park with his older brother and sister. But he got more than he bargained for, as the toddler’s siblings chased after their brother when the attempted kidnapper snatched him up and ran off with him.

A 22-month-old Washington boy is safe after a kidnapping thanks to the quick thinking reaction of his older brother and sister.

The toddler, Owen Wright, was playing in a park in Sprague, Washington, on Sunday with his older brother, 10-year-old Brenden, and sister, 8-year-old Delicia. The siblings were playing unsupervised in a park next to their babysitter’s home while their father, Michael Wright, was at work, according to local ABC affiliate KXLY.

Surveillance footage from a nearby grocery store shows the suspect running off with Owen in his arms.

As the suspect fled with Owen, the toddler’s siblings began chasing after him.

“This little girl come running around the corner screaming her head off,” witness Dorothy Giddings told KXLY.

Delicia’s screams alerted passersby, including two teenage boys who joined the pursuit.

“I didn’t really care. There was a kid’s life in danger,” said one of the teens, Andrew Crane.

“I don’t consider myself a hero. I consider myself a person doing the right thing,” said another, Isaac Yow.

The suspect eventually abandoned Owen in an empty lot before continuing to flee.

That must have been terrifying for all three of the children, but those children showed amazing bravery in chasing after their brother. And the two teenage boys who helped ensure that the toddler was found safely also deserve to be commended, too — it takes a lot of courage and character to be willing to risk your life to save that of a perfect stranger.
