msnbc: A quick-thinking 12-year-old girl prevented a kidnapper in a van from taking her when she held up her iPod Touch -- which looks exactly like the iPhone -- and told the man she was calling 9-1-1. According to a news report, he then fled.


The incident happened in Stanton, Delaware, and was reported by ABC station WPVI in Philadelphia.

The girl was standing on a sidewalk outside a middle school, waiting for her ride, when the man drove up and said to her, "Get in the van." When she heard that, she held the iPod Touch to her ear and told the suspect she was calling for help.

Good for her! Way to keep a cool head. The only way this could have been better is if she could have gotten the license plate of the van the guy was in.
