Ohio boy, 8, saved himself and sister from kidnapping

An 8-year-old Ohio boy is being called a hero after he saved himself and his older sister from a kidnapping attempt.The terrifying incident happened Thursday in Middletown, about 30 miles northeast of Cincinnati. The boy, only identified by the police as Chance, and his sister, identified as Skylar, were sitting in the backseat of their grandmother’s car as she took a woman to a hospital emergency room. The grandmother, Nita Coburn, stepped out of the car to help the woman into the emergency room. About 10 seconds later a man jumped into the driver’s seat and drove off.
“The little boy opened the door to escape and the little girl started to jump out also but the man grabbed the hoodie of the little girl, not allowing her to leave,” the Middletown Division of Police wrote on its Facebook page. “As she tried to get away her little brother grabbed hold of her and pulled her away from the kidnapper and they both tumbled out of the vehicle as it was moving.”
