A four-year-old girl who was having lunch with her mother was rescued from a brutal attack after an unknown man tried to catch her.
The girl, her mother and another woman were eating at a restaurant in Florida, a town west of Johannesburg, South Africa, when a man jumped over a patio barrier and attacked a child. Subsequent spectator tournaments helped save the girl from trouble.
Video surveillance from cameras of the restaurant shows the chaos that ensued when a seated girl was grabbed by the neck by a stranger. The girl’s mother and her roommates stood up to keep the man away from the child.
