The Good Samaritan who found the missing 5-year-old girl who was abducted from her West Philly classroom Monday is named Nelson Mandela.
Well, those are his first-and-middle names anyway, his last name is slated to come out when he speaks at a press conference this afternoon at Upper Darby Police Headquarters.
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said Nelson Mandela was walking to the 69th Street Station to catch a train to his job in Norristown around 4:40 a.m. this morning when he heard the child crying "Help, help, help," in a playground.
He found her soaking wet with just a t-shirt on. She told him "I ran away, I ran away," and he called police, Chitwood said.
