A 24-year-old father of two saved the life of a neighborhood girl when he chased the girl’s kidnapper until the kidnapper crashed and fled the scene. The dad, Antonio Diaz Chacon, brought the girl home and called police, who captured the accused kidnapper. The events leading up to the chase were just as dramatic: If not for several unbelievable coincidences, Chacon wouldn’t have even been in the area at the time.
