Watson said he just followed his paternal instincts.

A Northern California bus driver is being hailed a hero after he says he followed his parental instincts, an intuition so sharp it led him to stop a man from abducting a young boy on Friday.

A 3-year-old boy was reported kidnapped at the Milpitas Public Library at around 10:40 a.m.

A Northern California bus driver is being hailed a hero after he says he followed his parental instincts.

Local police quickly responded, closing the library to incoming and outgoing traffic and sending alerts to all area bus drivers to be on the lookout.

Tim Watson was on his morning shift when he caught sight of one of the alerts and about an hour later, the driver noticed a passenger in his mid-20’s with a crying boy, both of whom matched descriptions mentioned in the police alert.

Trusting his fatherly instincts Watson pulled the bus over and announced that someone had lost a backpack.

“What I’m really trying to do is to get up without him knowing to look at the little boy,” Watson said. “So sure enough, I see the plaid shorts and red shoes. That’s what really stuck out in my mind.”

The father of two noticed the boy’s red shoes and quickly radioed police.

“And that’s when my own kids came to mind and I just broke down. I couldn’t hold myself down. I just had to go inside the bus and reflect,” said Watson.
