Sean Deeds - A Good Samaritan in Seattle, Washington

Sometime in March of 2015, Sean Deeds was driving on a Seattle street with his son.

They were going fishing. 

As Sean was driving on the street he saw a young boy running as fast as he could down the street and heading into busy traffic. 

Sean stopped his car and jumped out.  He managed to grab the boy and pick him up. 

He called the police and when an officer arrived he handed the boy over and left the scene without divulging his name. 

The entire incident was caught on surveillance video and was posted to the Internet.  The Police and boy's mother were interested in finding the Good Samaritan who helped this 4 year old boy. 

A local TV station was able to track down the anonymous man. 

Sean was very humble about his act of kindness and said that anybody would do the same. He said that he was just in the right place at the right time. 
The Good Samaritan comes
to the aid of strangers, selflessly.

However, many people who were driving by would not have noticed this kid because they were self-absorbed and rushing to their destination, and others would not have wanted to "get involved". 

But Sean did get involved and the child's mother and the Police are thankful for his presence of mind. 

Sean eventually met the boy and his grateful mother where he was thanked for his kindness.  

God bless Sean Deeds and his loved ones.  He is a Good Samaritan. 

God bless all who come to the aid of strangers.  Amen.
