16-year-old Canaan heard the mom’s screams from across the street. When he got inside the gas station he used his skills to help save the day.One of the most terrifying nightmares a parent could have is seeing their kids being snatched away – most especially in broad daylight.
Such an incident occurred in a small grocer in New Mexico where the su*pe*t shamelessly tried to kidnap two little kids. The whole incident could’ve ended in heartbreak and tragedy but fortunately for the parent, the attempt was foiled before it could even do da**ge.
And it was not the cops who stopped the a***ck It was a teenage wrestler who chose to do the right thing when it was needed the most.
A mother, together with her three kids, were waiting for their Uber just outside Chuck’s Gas Station. It was then when the mother noticed a su*pe*t man was staring at her and the kids. His intentions were soon revealed when he grabbed one of them by the arm and demanded the woman to give her children to him.
After struggling with the man, the mother took her kids and rushed them inside the gas station’s store.
The man was chasing right after them. Store staff members and bystanders quickly went to the woman’s aid. At first, one of the strangers pulled the door close to prevent the su*pe*t from entering. However, the man forced his way inside the store and overpowered the stranger who tried to help.
The stranger, instead of fighting the su*pe*t, went outside the store and pushed the door so the man cannot get out.
Right across the street, Canaan Bower, a student-athlete noticed the commotion. At first, he didn’t think of it that much until the mother started screaming. Paying closer attention, he knew the family and the bystanders needed help.He entered the store and saw the su*pe*t was trying to break into the storage room where the family hid.
Bower grabbed the man and with his wrestling training, he took the su*pe*t down to the floor and pinned him down.
Bower admitted that he was worried if the man was keeping any weapons on him like a knife or a gun. But besides that, he still didn’t hesitate to put the family far from harm’s way.
Bower held him down until help arrived. Soon enough, sirens were blaring right outside the store. The cops came in and subdued the su*pe*t before Bower stepped aside.
The entire ordeal lasted only for about five minutes, but for the people involved, it would’ve felt like the longest five minutes of their lives.
