Being a woman can be tough, especially when walking alone at night. There’s always a fear of danger, like someone might harm you. Many women even hold their keys in their hands, ready to defend themselves if needed. Sadly, this fear is very real.
But sometimes, women find themselves in scary situations and have to think fast to stay safe. Recently, a woman in New York was followed by three strange men while walking alone. She did something unexpected – she hugged a random man and whispered to him for help.
This man, Dane Weeks, was just going to a friend’s house when the woman approached him. He realized the danger she was in and walked her home safely.
Dane shared his experience on Twitter. He explained that he usually doesn’t take that route, but he ended up there because he was distracted by his phone. He felt like it was fate that brought them together at that moment.
After walking the woman home, Dane exchanged numbers with her and offered to help her anytime she needed. He even met her 5-year-old son and spoke with her mother, who was thankful for his help.
The woman explained that Dane’s smile made her feel safe enough to approach him. She apologized for hugging him so suddenly, and they both laughed about the situation.
Even though the woman felt scared with three men following her, Dane’s kindness gave her the courage to ask for help. And it’s heartwarming to see strangers like Dane stepping up to keep others safe.
