VIDEO: Teenager Saves Woman from Kidnapping

Police in Laval, Quebec, in Canada are calling 17-year-old Malyk Bonnet a hero after he went to extraordinary lengths to aid the escape of a woman who had been abducted by her ex-boyfriend earlier this month, reports CBC.

In an interview with CBC Friday, Bonnet said that, at the time, he didn't think of himself as a hero.

"Now I realize what I did and wow ... it's really awesome. I mean, I saved a life!" Bonnet said with a laugh.

On Aug. 1, Bonnet was waiting for a bus to his home in the north end of Montreal after finishing his shift as a cook at a restaurant. He noticed a couple on the street involved in an altercation and was worried for the woman's safety.

Bonnet decided he had to help, and he was already formulating a plan. Even though he lived in Montreal, he told the couple he lived in Laval and would accompany them on the bus. He gained the man's trust and stayed with them for quite a while, on the bus and then the metro, even offering to take the couple to a restaurant and giving the man money to buy food there. Bonnet pretended to leave to use the restroom but borrowed someone's phone and called police.

Police arrested the man on the spot. He appeared in court Monday on charges of kidnapping, forcible confinement and assault.

Good Job young man!

This young man is gifted, creative and superb at connecting dots to take down a Perp. He deserves to be advanced in his line of work and is an excellent example of the aphorism:"You cannot keep a good man down." Brother, your glass is half full and you WILL be a success!

Quick thinking by Bonnet actually helped the woman and probably the man to will get some help for his anger management.

Good kid. We need more like him.

We need more people like this, and the Media to pick up the stories. The media in popular culture is 50% of the problem.

Give that young fella a medal!
