What do you do when someone you love is in trouble? You charge in to the rescue, of course! That’s exactly what a 2-year-old boy did when his sister got in a fight. The problem is no one told him it was a school wrestling match!
The moment was caught on cam as little toddler Jash Lewis ran as fast as his wee legs could carry him towards his 5-year-old sister’s opponent, Ryan Prendergast. Charging in to “save” his Ate, the protective little brother heroically tackled Ryan to the ground! Quickly after, he’s scooped up by the referee who was just a few steps away. Sibling love at its finest!
It was Ryan’s mom, Tori Allen, who uploaded the now-viral video to Facebook. “It was so cute. The whole place was cracking up when it happened,” she told the Huffington Post. You can definitely see the kids and adults at the sidelines laughing and clapping at the adorable moment.
“I only have boys, but if I had a daughter, I hope they would protect their sister like that,” said Tori Allen.
Mom of siblings Ruby and Jash, Crystal Lewis, told WNDU that she wasn’t surprised that her tot came to his sister’s rescue. “Some people’s kids are jealous of the next sibling down, and neither one of mine have ever been that way,” she said. “They’re always like, ‘That’s my sister.’ ‘That’s my brother.’”
Applause for mom Crystal for parenting such loving kids!
