Brave little girl, you’ll grow up to be a fine woman! She just proved that age does not determine bravery!
In a CCTV surveillance footage, four thieves can be seen robbing a man at gunpoint in General Trias, Cavite, Philippines, on September 27. The video has since gone viral on Facebook with over 1.2 million views and more than 2,000 shares at the time of writing.
While the robbers were fleeing the scene after stealing from the victim, his granddaughter quickly sprung into action to stop them.
The girl, who was playing on the street, chased the four men and snatched a bag filled with money that they had stolen from her grandfather, however, she fell down during the struggle and the robbers took the bag back.
When she continued to pursue the thieves to retrieve her grandfather’s belongings, she was run over by one of their motorcycles as the men rode away.
She is currently being treated at a hospital for a head injury.
The girl later told local reporters that she only wanted to help her grandfather as he ‘worked hard for their money’. She said,
“But some people would just take it away.”
Her grandmother later said,
“She was adamant in chasing the thieves and really fought them bravely.”
Local authorities in General Trias are investigating the incident and believed that the robbers had stalked their target before the heist.
We hope that the authorities will be able to nab the suspects soon. No one deserves to be treated this way.
