Toddler Sees Big Sis Get Tackled During Wrestling Match & Sprints Onto Mat.

Siblings are notorious for fighting with each other, especially when they’re young. But non-siblings getting in on the action? Not on this kid’s watch.

A toddler’s protective instincts kicked into high gear over the weekend, watching from the sidelines as his big sister Ruby was engaged in a wrestling match at her elementary school. A referee presided over the melee, but this 2-year-old had had enough.

In the video below, you can see him on the right, dashing out onto the gym floor like a pint-sized superhero.


“Get off my sister!”he yells, then grabs his sister’s opponent, 5-year-old Ryan Prendergast, by the head and tries to drag him away.


The footage was actually taken by Ryan’s dad, who showed it to his mom later that evening. She couldn’t resist posting the adorable footage on Facebook, where it’s since gone viral and garnered thousands of adoring comments:


“It was so cute. The whole place was cracking up when it happened,”said Ryan’s mom. “I only have boys, but if I had a daughter, I hope they would protect their sister like that.â€
