Most people walk away when they stumble upon an unpleasant situation or see someone acting strangely.
But fortunately, 17-year-old Cameron Cook of Boston did just the opposite when he saw a man acting strangely.
The teenager saw a man approach a little girl in a large shopping center and refused to leave her side.
This despite the fact that his mom thought they should leave. But what Cameron's mother didn't know was that her son would save the girl from a terrible fate.
Seventeen-year-old Cameron Cook was shopping with his mom at a Target in Boston, Massachusetts last November, when he noticed something strange. While his mother was in full shopping mode, Cameron saw a man touching himself while he looked luridly at something.
"I seen the guy grabbing himself, and my mom goes, 'Cam let's go, keep walking.' I was like, no, something's going on," Cameron told CBS.
The man smelled of liquor, and as he touched himself, he walked toward the little girl. When Cameron realized what was going on, he didn't hesitate. Without the slightest fear, Cameron went up to the large man and asked him if he knew the girl. The man declared, "I'm not a pervert! I'm not a pervert!"
"I didn't ask you that, sir," Cameron replied.
Cameron continued to confront the man until he became uncomfortable and ran out of the store. Thanks to Cameron's fine action, the little girl was spared from a horrific situation.
The Boston police urge parents to always keep an eye on their children while in public.
If 17-year-old Cameron hadn't confronted the man, the unthinkable could have happened.
