Police in Surrey, England, have released this amazing video of a group of quick-thinking kids who formed a human arrow to point a police helicopter in the direction of two suspected burglars on the run.
Via The Guardian:
The group of 30 children and adults were taking part in an Easter egg hunt in Capel, Surrey, when they became aware of the National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopter circling overhead.
The helicopter had been called by Surrey police following a report of intruders at a disused building.
A force spokesman said: “Initially, the presence of the police helicopter was enough to entertain the children and parents, but it didn’t take the intrepid residents long to realise they were witnessing a police pursuit.
“The children quickly formed an arrow on the ground in the middle of a ploughed field to guide the helicopter in the direction of the fleeing pair. The helicopter crew relayed this information to officers on the ground and a short time later two men were arrested.”
