Two Young Men Step Up To Help Girl Who Was Being Assaulted In North Tonawanda
They weren't friends with her. Heck, they didn't even know her. But when push literally came to shove, they stepped up to help her...because it was the right thing to do.
Anthony and Simon are wrestlers at North Tonawanda. Last week, they were working out on the school football field when they saw a girl get hit by a group of other girls. Then and there, they had a choice. They could do nothing at all. After all, they didn't know that girl. Why stick their necks out for someone that they don't know? They could call someone to help. But by then, the girl could have been seriously injured. They chose to take action themselves.
Why though? Why would they get in the middle of something for someone they didn't even know? Their response: It was the right thing to do.
While one of them took care of the victim, the other ushered the suspects away from her to get her to safety.
It takes a lot of guts to do something like that. Heck, in an instance like that, it takes guts to do anything at all to help.
In a statement from the parents of the victim, the boys are rightfully praised for what they did to help their daughter.
"As many stood and watched, only two courageous, outstanding young men stepped in to help, Anthony and Simon. These boys did not know our daughter, they just knew she was in trouble, and they took action. I can’t think of where we might be today had they not stopped this heinous assault on our sweet child. This being said, we cannot find enough words to praise and thank not only Anthony and Simon, but their parents, for raising young men with such courage, love and just basic human decency…Thank you."
They're right to thank those parents as well. Great job!
The entire assault was captured on video and an investigation is underway.
