Brave 9-year-old Boy Uses A Smart Watch To Flee From His Captor, He Tells The Nightmare He Lived

The magic of technology, his quick reaction, and in his words, “My family is much more important than a broken bone,” are the ingredients that helped him survive.

The magic of technology, his quick reaction and in his words, “my family is much more important than a broken bone”, are the ingredients that played together to save the life of this brave little man.

The event took place in a quiet town in Utah. Aiden was walking in his neighborhood in Saratoga Spring while on his way to a friend’s house in an apartment complex. A family vehicle headed toward him and stopped.

“The (man) got out of his car, walked, and then walked over to him,” Aiden told KSTU, adding, “I ran as fast as I could but tripped and fell, and he caught me.”

Apparently, his captor took him and placed him in the rear of the vehicle, while trying to cover his mouth with tape to prevent him from screaming. The suspect then drove a few blocks away from the abduction site and turned into a supermarket near the area.

At that moment, our little hero, demanded that his captor let him go, and then he jumped from the vehicle. As he fell he sprained his ankle, but that was not an impediment to Aiden from continuing to try to escape from this man. “My family is more important than breaking a bone,” said the boy in an interview in which he recounted his nightmare in detail.

The boy ran to a garbage container, and hid behind; It was in those moments that he used a smart watch that allows him to call up to four people. His stepfather answered his mother’s phone and within minutes was there to rescue him.

The watch also has a smart navigation system that lets you know where it is at all times.

When family is the most important

The desire to see his family again was the strongest feeling that led Aiden to want to fight with all his might and face the worst fears a person can face.
