Chance Blue’s heroic efforts to save his older sister from being kidnapped made national headlines last spring.
The eight-year-old and his 10-year-old sister, Skylar Weaver, were sitting in a car when a man jumped into the front seat and began to drive away. Chance immediately opened the car to escape, but the kidnapper, identified as Dalvir Singh, 24, grabbed Skylar when she tried to jump out.
Chance sprang into action to save his big sister, pulling his sister from the kidnapper’s grip until they both fell out of the vehicle.
Chance and Skylar recently opened up about the ordeal on The Steve Wilkos show. Wilkes interviewed the heroic siblings, applauding them both for their bravery.
Chance Blue appears on The Steve Wilkos Show to share his incredible story.
“What’s great is, both your instincts were to protect each other,” Wilkos said. “These kids are like superheroes.”
During the interview, Chance recounted the “very” scary situation.
“The guy started looking around and got… in the car. Then he started telling my brother to get out of the car,” Skylar told Wilkos. “And Chance got halfway out of the car and the guy had a hold of the back of my hoodie, and I couldn’t get out.”
Middletown Division of Police Chief Rodney Muterspaw also applauded Chance’s bravery. “This little guy is a hero. No question. He pulled his sister out of the car with no concern for his own safety,” he said in a press release that was distributed after the attempted kidnapping. “That is incredible at his age.”
Singh is currently in jail on a $250,000 bond.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
