Recently the world, or at least the United States, has been full of hard times. However, with these struggles it is easily noticed when a hero emerges.

In Santa Ana California, Amy Martinez was walking to her middle school when a stranger, known as Claudia Hernandez Diaz, came up and forced Amy to walk with her.

Amy explains to KTLA-TV that the Diaz came up and hugged her forcefully pushing the child alongside her. But not getting very far before Amy knew she was in trouble, and yelled for help out in the open.

Sure enough a good stranger, who wanted to stay anonymous, drove by and heard the cry for help.

While driving the stranger was acting as if she was Amy’s mother yelling “get off my daughter,” “let her go,” etc. and sure enough when Diaz heard the change of tone in the strangers voice she let go and Amy and began to run.  

This unknown rescuer then took Amy to school, and later called the police. And with in a few hours Diaz was caught, and taken in for attempting kidnapping.

Amy says that her new “friend” is her hero, and in an interview thanked her for saving her life.
