In Middletown Ohio, an 8 yr old boy is being hailed as a hero! This young guy helped his older sister escape a potential kidnapping.


According to, the children were traveling with their 69-year-old grandmother, Nita Coburn, when she parked outside an entrance to the Atrium Medical Center and helped a friend toward the door. About 10 seconds after Coburn got out of the car, 24-year-old Dalvir Singh allegedly entered and attempted to drive away with the children inside.

The eight-year-old boy opened the door to escape, but Singh reportedly grabbed hold of his older sister’s hoodie. The boy was able to grab his 10-year-old sister just as the car began to pull away. The police were able to apprehend Singh, who is charged with two counts of kidnapping, felonious assault, and grand theft.

Way to go young man!!
