Gurdwara killing: Meet ‘hero kids’ who saved lives
Washington: Two kids were among the bravest people at the Sikh temple near Milwaukee, who helped save many lives during the shooting.
Amanat Singh, 9, and her brother, Abhay Singh, 11, were playing outside the Gurdwara when they heard gunshots that sounded like fireworks.
“We saw a guy,” ABC News quoted Amanat as saying, adding: “He got out of a cab and he fast-walked and hit two people who were getting into their car.”
According to the report, the children did not hesitate and ran into the temple to sound an alarm.
“As soon as we got in the kitchen, I started yelling,” Abhay said, adding: “I’m like: There’s a guy with a gun! Hide! Hide!”
Amanat said she feared “that he’s going to kill everyone”.
The siblings were able to warn more than a dozen people to run and hide. Amanat and Abhay are happy they were able to do that.
Amanat even said she feels like a hero, the report added. “I feel proud because I saved lots of lives,” she said. Even so, she and her brother wish they could have done more, the report said.
