Growing up Yousef Saleh Erakat’s biggest fear was getting kidnapped. So, he created a video to demonstrate what would happen in that situation.

Would a stranger help him? Or turn a blind eye? What happens next — in some cases — will horrify parents. Others will restore your faith in humanity.

The YouTube description says, “Growing up my biggest fear was getting kidnapped. I would get home early from school and sit on my front lawn until my parents came home because I felt like someone was inside my house waiting for me. This video was a way for me to express that fear in an artisitc way and also spread positive change as to why it is important to ACT when put into these types of situations. Kids being abducted are nervous being around the person who captured them so it’s on us to know when he or she is in danger. This video will not bring back any of the disappeared angels but it may help prevent losing anymore to the devil.”
