SURREY, England, April 3 (UPI) — A group of young people paused their Easter egg hunt to form a human arrow pointing a police helicopter toward a robbery suspect hiding nearby.
The group of 6- to 12-year-olds formed the giant human arrow to point out to the National Police Air Service helicopter where the man was hiding in Surrey,news.com.au reported. Surrey police posted about the incident on both Facebook and Twitter.
As police scoured area fields for two fleeing suspects, the officers spotted the group of eight children who were lying flat on the ground in the form of a giant arrow, The Evening Standard reported..
The helicopter cameraman quickly realized what the youngsters were up to and panned his shot over to where the tip of the arrow was pointing and there was their suspect.
The NPAS posted a YouTube video that showed what the helicopter crew had filmed during the incident when the suspect was located, then captured, an eggciting ending for the kids performing a good deed.
