Brave Customer Acts as a Human Shield for a Scared Little Girl during an Armed Robbery
Seeing your child in danger and not being able to help is every parent’s worst nightmare. It’s not only an intensely helpless feeling, but an insanely scary one as well.
If at all possible, most parents wouldn’t think twice about stepping in and risking their own lives if it meant that there was even a small chance that their child would be out of danger. It’s just the way that parental love works. There’s nothing they wouldn’t do for their child.
For beauty store owner Mamie Ugwuanyi, her moment of terror came when an armed robber stormed into her shop while her 7-year-old daughter Victoria was out of reach. Ugwuanyi couldn’t get to Victoria, but customer Heather Correy could.
Correy grabbed Victoria at the first moment she could and shielded the little girl with her own body.
As any mother would, Correy stepped in even though it wasn’t her child in danger. A mother’s instinct to protect knows no bounds.
