Woman Pretends to be little girl’s mom to save her from being 'kidnapped'

A woman has been dubbed a modern day ‘hero’ after she foiled a kidnap attempt in Santa Ana, California.
The target-Amy Martinez, a little girl was on her way to school, when one of the abductors, identified by the police as Claudia Hernandez Diaz approached her and tried to get her to change direction.
The quick thinking ‘hero’, who had gone to drop her own kids in school, noticed what was going on and speedily intervened.
She introduced herself to Diaz as the little girl’s mom and demanded she let the girl go. She took Martinez to her school- Lathrop Intermediate, from where she called the police. 
Martinez says the woman who saved her is a "hero".
I was thinking, 'Oh my gosh, I'm going to live
The assailant-Diaz, who was said to be "homeless”, has since been arrested.
