8-year-old boy hailed as ‘hero’ for helping sister escape an alleged kidnapper

Ohio police are recognizing an 8-year-old boy who bravely pulled himself and his 10-year-old sister to safety after a man stole his great grandmother’s car.

Their great grandmother, Nita Coburn, 69, was taking another woman to Atrium Medical Center in Middletown on Thursday afternoon. The two kids. Chance Blue and Skylar Weaver, were sitting in the back seat.

A few seconds after Coburn exited the car to help the woman get to the emergency room, Dalvir Singh, 34, jumped into the driver’s seat and took off with the children still in the back, police said.

“He kept saying, ‘Get out, get out,'” Chance said.

Chance opened the door to escape with his Skylar, who was about to jump out when Singh grabbed her by the hoodie, according to police.

Dalvir Singh, who was arrested on kidnapping charges in Middletown, Ohio, is seen in this undated booking photo.
