A 10-year-old girl who was saved from a carjacker by her hero brother outside an Ohio hospital has recalled the terrifying moment in a new interview with Steve Wilkos.
Skylar Weaver and her brother, Chance, recalled how heroin addict, Dalvir Singh, 24, tried to drive off while they were in the backseat of their great aunt’s car in April.
‘The guy started looking around and got back in the car and he started telling my brother to get out of the car,’ Skylar said as she cast her eyes down to the floor.
‘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,’ she said through tears.
That’s when Chance was able to pull her out of the vehicle. Video of the incident shows Chance hanging out of the car while trying to get his sister away from Singh.
Ultimately, he was successful in rescuing his sister and is now being hailed a hero.
The siblings’ great aunt, Angela, also told Wilkos about Skylar and Chance’s upbringing.
Chance was born with crack in his system and taken away from his drug addict biological mother.
She revealed that she gained custody of them three years ago after their great-grandmother passed away.
According to family members, the children had rough starts to their lives with Skylar being taken from her biological mother due to her mom’s drug use, jail time and domestic violence incidents.
Chance was also removed from his mother’s care immediately after being birthed with heroine and crack in his system.
On April 29, 2019, the day of the incident, Angela fell ill and was taken to the hospital by the children’s grandmother Nita Coburn, 69.
When they arrived to the hospital, Coburn pulled up to the emergency room entrance, got a wheelchair and pushed Angela about six feet to the entrance before she heard the children screaming.
Coburn turned around and saw the man in the driver’s seat trying to close the door and pull off with her vehicle and her grandchildren still in the backseat.
Surveillance footage shows the moment Singh pulled off with the car as Chance opened his door.
Moments later Coburn is seen running along the driver’s side of the vehicle and attempting to get Singh to stop.
Simultaneously, Chance struggled with Singh and was able to unbuckle her seatbelt and fall out of the moving car with his sister in tow.
Not realizing that the children had made it to safety, Coburn kept trying to get the driver’s side door open, but the kidnapper drove off with her clinging to the side of the car, dragging her for a few feet.
The incident occurred at the Atrium Medical Center in Middletown, Ohio.
About 15 minutes later, police pulled Singh over and arrested him.
He was charged with two counts of kidnapping, felonious assault, and grand theft.
Police allege that the man is addicted to heroin.
