The incident occurred while Nikita was visiting her sister's residence in Mau's Awas Vikas Colony. She was playing with her 15-month-old niece near the kitchen on the first floor of the house. A monkey entered the house, ventured into the kitchen, began throwing utensils, and later attempted to attack the child. The toddler didn't understand what was happening so she began to call for her mother. Meanwhile, Nikita saw the Alexa device on the refrigerator and commanded it to "bark." The device made loud barking noises and scared the monkey away.

Talking to the media house, Nikita said that some people had just gone out of the house and left the gate open so the monkey came in. "He started to scare the baby, that's when I thought I should ask Alexa to make a dog sound," the 13-year-old said. The monkey got scared and ran away, she added. Nikita's family was relieved and proud of what she did but also shared that their colony has been grappling with monkey problems for quite some time. They are also happy that the device is being put to good use. It has not only helped to get news and information but also to save two lives. It proves how today's generation is equipped with the technology and uses it for good.

Talking about quick thinking, another kid was heading home from school in Pottstown when a woman started to follow him. Sam Green's father said that the woman began to walk with him and asked him where his dad was. Then she asked him to come to a nearby store with her. She then attempted to get the child to enter a neighboring convenience shop. She said that she knew his father and was going to Wawa and he was supposed to go with her and he could get whatever he wanted.



 

Understanding what was going on, the child quickly got into a store he was familiar with and approached the cashier, Hannah Daniels. "He was like, 'Pretend like you're my mom,'" Hannah said, "and I was just like, 'All right go to the back.' He didn't want to leave my side." The incident was captured on the security camera at the store which also shows the stranger standing by the door as if she was waiting for Sammy. Hannah went to the door calmly and locked it from the inside. The woman quickly walked off. Thanks to the boy's quick thinking and Hannah's efforts, the child was safe.
