The young woman was screaming for help, asking Huntington to protect her. He could see that she was clearly frightened for her life. She subsequently pleaded with him to call the authorities, saying that a man was going to take her life if they didn’t.
Yet despite being faced with such an expected and frightening situation, Huntington snapped into survival mode and kept his cool to ensure the woman stayed safe. Recalling what he did next to news channel WTVR, Huntington said, “I asked the female if she was OK and she said no, there was a man trying to kill her. I told her just stay behind me and I wouldn’t let anything happen to her.”
Although the young woman had escaped, her ordeal wasn’t over. In fact, the man who’d abducted her had also exited the car that she had just fled from, and he was now following her on foot. He was on the phone, he was angry, and he was heading straight for them.
