Stranger Tries To Lure Child Away, But Ordinary Citizens Say, “No Way.”

What would you do if you were sitting in a public space, and a man tried to lead the child sitting next to you away?


That’s the question posed in a video by YouTuber MattTV. His videos often center around emotional and thought-provoking scenarios he has set up as a social experiment. In this case, the little girl in the video is an actress, so she’s not in any real danger. The stranger who approaches her is also in on the plot, but the people she sits next to are not.

It’s fascinating to see how total strangers overhear the man’s conversation with the child. You can almost see the exact moment when their “this isn’t right” instinct kicks in, and they intervene.

We love how passionately each of these everyday heroes stand up for the little girl! This video is a great reminder that we’re all global citizens who need to look out for one another, particularly the youngest and most vulnerable among us.
