Good Samaritan Rescues Kidnapped Girl

An out of work carpenter is being hailed as a hero Tuesday after rescuing an 8-year-old girl who had been kidnapped the day before.

Victor Perez recognized her abductor's car from television reports and repeatedly tried to force the man's car off the road to see if the girl was inside.

"He kept getting away. He kept going round my truck. The last time I completely said, 'Either he crashes into me or he stops.' He stopped and pushed the little girl out," he told NBC station KSEE 24 News.
