Police in Albuquerque credit a quick-thinking neighbor with saving a little girl's life. Antonio Diaz Chacon, a 24-year-old mechanic, jumped in his pickup and gave chase after spotting a man throw a 6-year-old girl into a van as a neighbor shouted at him. He followed the van through a maze of neighborhoods and rescued the girl after the would-be kidnapper crashed the van into a pole and fled, AP reports.

Police found packing tape and a tie-down strap hidden under a rock just 25 feet from where the suspect crashed his van. "This little girl was very lucky," said a police spokeswoman. "We can only guess what would have happened to this child." A 29-year-old suspect has been charged with kidnapping, child abuse, and tampering with evidence. Diaz Chacon, who has two young daughters of his own, says he was proud to help.
