Zavi Ahmed, 5, of Uckfield, Sussex, UK went shopping with his mother. He wanted to be a superhero that day, so he dressed as Batman. His 2-year old brother dressed as Superman. This turned out to be a very appropriate decision.
While in the parking lot of a Tesco, Zavi and his mother learned that a woman had accidentally locked her infant granddaughter inside a car. It was a hot day, so the baby was in great danger. When police arrived, they smashed the rear window. Zavi then crawled inside the car and unlocked the door. The Daily Mail quotes the grandmother:
‘We called the police and they tried everything and eventually smashed the back window. They couldn’t reach the door because it’s quite small. We needed to get the keys from the dashboard.
‘Then these two little boys turned up - one was dressed as Batman and the other as Superman. They had the whole outfits and were so sweet.
‘A policeman put his jumper down on the window to protect from the glass and Batman crawled in to fetch the keys. I was so proud. He was a true superhero and I’m so grateful to him.
‘If it was a hotter day we would’ve smashed the window much sooner. Iris is so happy to be saved by Batman - if she gets married that will definitely be told at her wedding.’
