A Heroic Act of Sibling Love

Siblings have a bond that is truly special, and this heartwarming story reaffirms just how powerful that bond can be. Meet Owen Burns, a 13-year-old boy from Alpena Township in Michigan.

One day, Owen was getting ready to play his favorite video game, “Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” when he heard his younger sister screaming outside. Concerned for her safety, Owen looked out the window and witnessed an alarming sight. Someone was forcefully dragging his 8-year-old sister towards the nearby woods.

In a split second, Owen knew he had to act. He grabbed his slingshot, a $3 toy his mom had bought for him, and quickly loaded it with a marble and a rock. Thanks to his practice hitting old orange cans, Owen had confidence in his aim. With adrenaline rushing through his veins, he aimed the slingshot and struck the kidnapper not once, but twice. The first shot landed right between the kidnapper’s eyes, and the second hit him in the chest. Startled and likely in pain, the kidnapper swore and ran away, leaving Owen’s sister unharmed.

Once safely back home, Owen and his sister immediately called their mother, who was away helping a relative at the time. When she heard what had happened, she rushed home and contacted the police. Michigan State Police successfully tracked down the alleged kidnapper, a 17-year-old teenager who will face charges as an adult.

Lt. John Grimshaw, speaking at a news conference, described Owen’s actions as “extraordinary” and emphasized that Owen truly saved his sister from something terrible happening to her. The police confirmed Owen’s account, as the suspect had injuries consistent with being struck by a slingshot.

Owen’s mother, Maggie Burns, initially found it hard to believe her son’s incredible story. In awe of his bravery, she admitted, “It just didn’t sound real, until there was proof. It sounds like something you would see in the movies.” Owen, ever wise beyond his years, responded, “Mom, stuff in the movies can and do happen in real life.”

This heroic act of sibling love has garnered praise from the entire community. Owen’s quick thinking and courage have rightfully earned him the title of a true hero. Let us all share this inspiring story with our family and friends to spread positivity and remind ourselves of the power of love and bravery.
