HAMPTON, N.H. (CBS) – Police officers are crediting a three-year-old boy for saving his elderly neighbor from a dangerous situation.
On Wednesday afternoon, Eyas Tran was walking with his moms Minh and Lindsey when he noticed a newspaper on his neighbor’s doorstep. Minh said he likes to bring the paper to Peggy, who lives alone next door. “We consider her family,” said Minh Tran.
When Eyas got to her door, though, he noticed a few other newspapers. “There was one, two, three newspapers,” Eyas said.
His parents knew something was wrong when Peggy didn’t answer the door or her phone, and her car was in the garage. That’s when they called the police.
“There’s a new spirit abroad in the land. The old days of ‘grab and greed’ are on their way out. We’re beginning to think of what we owe the other fellow, not just what we’re compelled to give him. The time’s coming… when we shan’t be able to fill our bellies in comfort while others go hungry, sleep in warm beds while others shiver in the cold.... And God willing, we’ll live to see that day…” Basil Rathbone,"Sherlock Holmes Faces Death" (Universal 1943)
