Boy uses Gizmo Watch to call for help during kidnapping

- A Utah boy’s quick-thinking helped him get to safety after running away from a kidnapper Tuesday.

The boy, identified as Aiden, 9, told KSTU-TV that he was walking in a Saratoga Springs neighborhood to meet a friend nearby when he was snatched by a strange man in a tan Chevy Tahoe. The boy said he was able to escape and used his Gizmo Watch to call for help.

"He got out of the car, walking, and then he just charged at me," Aiden said. "I ran as fast as I could, but I tripped and I fell and he caught me."

He said he was thrown into the back of the vehicle and the man tried to put duct tape over his mouth so he wouldn’t scream. Aiden said he punched it away.

The boy said he pleaded with the man to let him go, but ended up jumping from the vehicle and spraining his ankle.
