Quick-thinking school aide rescues girl, foils kidnapping

Ferguson-salazarA California teacher’s aide said she feels like “a super-woman” after foiling the attempted kidnapping of an 11-year-old girl.

As Sandra Ferguson was driving to work at Sutter Elementary School in Antioch, Friday, she noticed a former student with a scared look on her face sitting in the car of a middle-aged man, according to Fox10TV.com.

Feeling that something wasn’t quite right, she pulled over and asked the girl, “Is that your dad?”

“No, he’s my friend,” the girl replied.

“No he’s not. He’s not your friend,” Ferguson told the girl, as her instincts kicked in.

“I put my car in front of his car – I blocked him, and I told her, ‘You get out of the car right now,’” Ferguson told the station.

After the girl scrambled into her car, Ferguson called law enforcement.

The police arrested 51-year-old Santiago Salazar for kidnapping.

Ferguson’s school principal, Debra Harrington applauded her bravery.

“Thankfully, she was  a guardian angel at that point in preventing something from happening,” Harrington said. The girl’s family has personally thanked Ferguson.

“I’m glad she’s safe – that’s the main thing,” she said.

According to police, the girl didn’t know the suspect.
