A South African grandmother’s bravery in trying to rescue her grandchild inspired a whole nation.

One of the biggest threats is home invasions and kidnapping in an increasing number of nations, including South Africa. They break in at night and search kid-friendly households before robbing them of their possessions, cash, and jewels.

Sometimes attackers may abduct children and demand a ransom from the family in return for the child.

Parents had to go to work, so they asked grandmother Zelinda to watch for her grandson Lucas, who is 3 years old.
