A 5-year-old kid became an unusual hero when he fought an armed man in order to save his family in South Bend in the US state of Indiana.
The video, which was posted on the official Twitter handle of the South Bend Police, shows four masked men — three of them armed — entering a house. When they break in, we see a man being pushed at the entrance. A woman sitting in the room can be seen ironing a kid’s shirt.
The kid was also in the room and the armed men can be seen pointing their guns towards the two. They pushed the man and the woman in other rooms while the kid courageously threw something at one of the armed men.
Hitting the man who had a gun, the kid is seen bravely trying to save his mother from the men who invaded their home but is also pushed inside the room. The men did not rob anything. They fired gunshots but no injuries were reported during the home invasion.
As per the Daily Mail, the kid in the video is David Johnson and the woman is his mother Tamika Reid. Speaking about his act, David said that he wanted to protect his mother and that is why he started throwing his toys at the man.
Sharing the video, South Bend police urged the people to help them identify the invaders. Faces of the victims have been blurred in the video.
