A HERO!! In Every Sense Of The Word!

Sometimes there are moments in life where you thank God for someone!

A 3-year-old boy was reported missing from a library outside San Francisco. Tim Watson, a Valley Transportation Authority bus driver, an hour later, noticed a man and boy on his bus who matched the description of the suspect and child.

At first, Tim didn’t think much of it, but moments later he could tell the boy was crying. That’s when this bus driver, a father of two, tapped into his paternal instincts.

Tim concocted a brilliant plan to thwart the suspect and turn him over to authorities. Instead of questioning the suspect, he pulled the bus over and started asking all of the passengers if they’d seen a missing green backpack. In reality, he was trying to get to the perpetrator. As he pretended to continue searching for the backpack, Tim took the opportunity to call the police. When the bus arrived at the station, police officers were waiting. There was the 23-year-old suspect, getting off the bus with the missing 3-year-old in his arms.

After they “pried the child away” from the kidnapper, he was taken into custody. Thankfully, the child appeared to have no injuries.

When Tim learned the truth — that this was indeed abduction and his instincts were spot-on — he broke down. “This could have been my child that was abducted… I feel I did what any father would do.” What an incredible unlikely hero.

The scariest part of this story is that the suspect and the victim had no known connections. Only 1% of abductions happen from a stranger making the psychology behind it a much greater threat. Police is now trying to find out what he intended to do with the child. Thankfully, this bus driver keeps his cool and they were able to save this child.

The boy was reunited, unharmed, with his parents at the police station.

Heroic and Incredible! If only more and more people were focus on what is going on around them I believe more crimes can be averted!

Bus drivers are more than just drivers...
