CTV footage from a Spur restaurant somewhere in South Africa has been shared on Facebook to promote awareness about the risks of kidnapping. It can happen so quickly.

People please beware, always ALWAYS keep an eye on your kids when visiting restaurants, malls or any public area.

This little boy was nearly kidnapped if it wasn’t for the vigilance of his mother and father who spotted the child being picked up by a person and taken away from the play area.

From my conversation with the mother, criminal proceedings are underway and also please people, leave the racist comments, finger pointing for your own house and not for this post.

Please share to make other parents aware of the dangers out there and let’s all keep our kids safe.

Watch the video below of the attempted kidnapping at Spur restaurant!
