8-year old Nathan Kuhns will be holding his little sister Josie alot closer tonight — after beating off a man who was trying to abduct her. Police credit the quick actions of a caring brother for saving his younger sister’s life.
According to Erin Kuhns, the children’s mother, the family was walking near the beach in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Friday while on vacation. Suddenly, her daughter, Josie, ran off. Kuhns said she then told her son, Nathan, to chase after her. When the 8-year old boy caught up with his sister, Nathan said he saw a man trying to drag the girl and force her into his car. “I screamed because of the fact someone was trying to pull her in the car and I went down there and beat the crap out of this guy,” Nathan said of the rescue. The boy was able to wrestle his sister away from the would-be abductor. Little Nathan, a CSI fan, was able to provide DNA evidence to police, because he scratched the man so severely. He says he saw that on TV. The man escaped and police are now searching for him. I can’t wait to catch a glimpse of the creep, who not only tried to abduct a 4-year old, but lost a battle to an 8-year old boy. I hope cops get this guy before he tries this again.
The family will appear on CBS’ “The Early Show” tommorow to tell the whole story. This kid is a firecracker, and a hero.
