Is it teething time for your little one?

A heroic father has rescued his daughter right from the hands of her abductor.


Troy Morley broke into a home in Utah and took the family’s five-year-old daughter, but was apprehended by the little girl’s stepfather before he could get away.


The man heard noises and looked out of his window to find 46-year-old Morley making his way across the front lawn with the child in his arms at 4.30am this morning.


According to reports, he screamed: “What are you doing? That’s my daughter, you’re not taking her!”


The man then ran out and managed to rescue the little girl, with Morley fleeing after the struggle.


Morley was later apprehended by the police in another house, receiving a bite wound from one of the authorities’ search dogs.


According to reports, neither the child nor the parents had ever seen Morley before.


What a terrifying story. Thank heavens that brave father woke up just in time.
