After a woman left her grandchildren inside a car for less than a minute while wheeling her sick daughter into the Atrium Medical Center emergency room in Middletown, Ohio, a car thief took the opportunity to jump in the woman’s car and drive off, almost taking an 8-year-old and his 10-year-old sister with him.
“I went around and helped get [my daughter], Angie, in a wheelchair and wheeled her just inside the door,” 69-year-old Nita Coburn told Local 12. “And I heard the kids scream. The first scream, I let go and ran.”
Colburn chased the car and grabbed the driver’s side of the door, but the driver slammed his foot on the gas, which knocked her to the ground.
“That’s where I had a hold of the door handle. I wouldn’t let go of the door handle and he drug me a ways.”
A few seconds prior, 8-year-old Chase managed to get the back door open and pulled his sister, Skylar from the vehicle.
“Skylar ran to me, so I could see her but I couldn’t see Chance, and I thought, I thought Chance was still in the car,” Colburn explained to the outlet. “I kept screaming that he was still in the car and that was the worst feeling in the world.”

At the same time, Chance ran into the emergency room for help. Police acted quickly and captured the suspect, identified as 24-year-old Dalvir Singh.
The suspect, according to police, was arrested and charged with kidnapping, felonious assault and grand theft. According to ABC News, authorities said Singh was under the influence of heroin when the incident occurred.

Meanwhile, little Chance is being hailed a hero by local enforcement, not only for saving his sister but rushing to get help. Chance, however, thinks his grandmother is the hero.
“She would probably die for us. She loves us,” the little boy told FOX 19.
