A video of an impressively sharp woman who helped save a little girl from a near kidnapping experience.
In the clip, the little girl can be seen buying ice cream from the woman’s stall. A man standing nearby on the phone can be seen as the girl and the woman interacting for a while.
The woman keeps a close eye on the man as the girl walks off. The woman quickly runs for the girl when she notices the man walk towards the girl as well as a stationary vehicle with its back door opened. Fortunately, the woman manages to rescue the girl in the nick of time.
The video shared by @RexChapman on Twitter affords much relief and highlights the concerning rise of abduction and kidnapping. The abduction of young women and selling them for purposes of concubinage or prostitution has also been characterised as a form of kidnapping.

Several impressed online users responded to the post with relief to the woman’s skill and stealth. Others, however, shared that they felt the incident was staged for educational purposes.
“I'm crying. So happy that woman was so awesome to watch out for that girl. Hero!”
“I don’t know what’s worse. The fact that people think this isn’t staged or the horrendous camera work.”
“For everyone saying it is staged, it’s a teaching video, that is why you see the same actors doing different versions. Brilliant idea.”

Teen Girl, 16, manages to escape after being kidnapped by 4 men in KZN
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a 16-year-old girl, fortunately, was able to escape from a car after she was allegedly kidnapped by four men in Zwelisha in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday, 12 February.
The teenage girl had walked to a tuck shop close to her home at around 2pm when a Volkswagen Polo stopped next to her.
The men then forced the girl into the car and gagged her when she tried to scream for help. One of the suspects then threatened her with a knife, ensuring that she obeyed their demands.
