Unknowingly in the presence of a highly violent individual, a young man walked straight into a possibly life-threatening situation to protect a fellow human being.

Sadly, domestic violence is a worldwide phenomenon affecting women and men everywhere. In the United States alone, the statistics are alarming.

Out of every 4 American women, 1 will experience domestic violence throughout their lifetime. In general, women are more likely to be murdered by their current or ex-lover.

WALKING INTO THE LION'S DEN

In 2015, this tragic reality looked to be coming to fruition when one Canadian resident's ex-partner kidnapped her. The police were aware of the incident. Laval police Leuteniant Daniel Guérin said:

"A 29-year-old woman who was kidnapped by her former boyfriend earlier that day, and we believed that man was very dangerous."

Oblivious to the lethal situation he had just stepped into, when this terrified woman asked 17-year-old Malyk Bonnet from Montreal to help her, the teenager didn't hesitate.

A GUT INSTINCT

Unaware of the kidnapping, Bonnet's intuition kicked in when he witnessed a man pushing around a woman at a bus stop. The young man chose to approach them, and they asked him for bus money to the city of Laval.

Bonnet said he would provide them with the money, and in a moment alone with the woman, she begged him to help her. Thinking quickly, he said he was also traveling to Laval, which he initially wasn't, and joined them on the bus.

When they got off, he offered to buy them dinner at Tim Hortons, and they accepted. Thinking quickly, he went to the restaurant where he called the police.

TO THE RESCUE

In only a few minutes, law enforcement arrived to arrest the violent individual. Once the man was cuffed, the victim did not speak to Bonnet but, the teenager recollected:

"We made eye contact and she had tears in her eyes. She was really happy."

Overnight, Bonnet became a national hero, where he found himself on the front page of Journal de Montreal for his brave actions.

The Laval Police Department reimbursed the young man the money he had spent to save the woman, landing at C$250. Speaking about the expenses

COURAGE DON'T COST A THING

Bonnet expressed: "I mean yo, money ain't nothing. Food ain't nothing. For a life? A life is really more important than my money."

The hero was nominated for a national bravery award and an award by the department themselves too. I think we can all agree that Bonnet deserved all these nominations, fame, and praise.
