“Tremendous 12’ form human arrow to help police find thieves
Footage of twelve children forming a human arrow, to help police helicopters catch two fleeing burglars, wasreleased on April 1st 2016 by the Surrey Police.The children aged between six and twelve, who have since been dubbed the ‘tremendous 12’ had been taking part in an Easter Egg Hunt on Good Friday when they noticed the police helicopter above. The helicopter had been called by Surrey Police after reports of intruders in a disused building.
The human arrow, which was first thought to have been an April Fool’s Day prank when released by the Police department, successfully directed the helicopter to the suspects, who were caught.Describing the event, a nine-year-old girl told reporters “It was really noisy and we could see it said ‘police’ on the bottom. Then we saw a man running along the side of the field. We could see him but the helicopter couldn’t because it was hovering over the woods.”
The girl continued to explain the event “We saw the man take off his jumper and put it around his head. Then he dropped it and ran off into the woods and we pointed and shouted at the helicopter, ‘He’s gone that way!’”
As the helicopter was pointing in the opposite direction the children decided to make an arrow. “Two of my friends said, “Let’s get into an arrow” and we got into position on the ground.”
The children also said that they feel ‘proud’ of their actions – I bet, very well done to the ‘tremendous twelve’!
