Sierra Mason is relieved after a harrowing ordeal that put her nephew in grave danger was resolved, and all thanks to the intervention of a Good Samaritan.

Sierra told WEWS Cleveland that she stopped at a gas station and got out of her car, thinking that she had locked the doors. Her 5-year-old nephew Zyon was inside the vehicle.

Seconds later, a thief jumped into the car and took off with the little boy in the back seat.

The thief must have realized that the boy was there because about a mile and a half away, he dumped him out into the street, leaving him all by himself. Zyon did not know where he was or how to get back to his aunt.

That’s when William Strozier entered the story. Luckily for everyone, William had decided to switch up his routine that day. He took a different path than normal, and eventually ran into the little boy.

As soon as he saw him and realized he was alone, he asked Zyon if he knew his address or his mom’s phone number. Zyon was able to contact his aunt, and police reunited the relieved family — all thanks to William.

“I was just happy God had me there at that time to do his work, to be that little boy’s guardian angel,” William told WEWS.

As for Sierra, she says that she’s glad that her family practiced drills for emergencies like this!
