Police in Surrey, England, got some unusual help with a manhunt last month. A police helicopter was searching for two suspected intruders at an abandoned building when officers noticed some kids in a nearby field had formed a human arrow.
The group of children were hunting for Easter eggs when they saw the helicopter overhead and decided to point the police in the right direction. Thanks to their help, the helicopter crew quickly notified officers on the ground of one suspect’s location.
“I’m sure the last thing the group of daring Capel residents expected when they set out on Friday afternoon was to abandon their Easter egg hunt to assist us in a police search but the initiative they demonstrated proved to be invaluable,” National Police Air Service Sgt. Paul Sochon told CNN.
Authorities say they arrested a 28-year-old man and 27-year-old man on suspicion of burglary.
