There are just somethings that are instinctual for siblings. Kudos to this young man who bravely hung onto the SUV to keep a convicted sex offender from abducting his sister.
The criminal, who was on bail for robbery, attempted to abduct the girl (12) on the side of a country road near the village of Cullahill in Laois.
She was playing with her two brothers near their home when the man stopped and asked for directions to the local priest’s house.
He then jumped from the stolen vehicle and grabbed the girl.
But her younger brother lunged through the driver’s window at the would-be kidnapper punching him as the jeep began to drive away.
The brave boy distracted the driver long enough so that his sister could jump from the moving vehicle.
