Check out this hero! 10-year-old Laken Blanford knew something wasn’t right when a stranger walked into their house in Nelson County “like he owned the house, like he had every right to be there.”

She hid along with her grandmother and little brother and FaceTimed her dad asking if anyone was supposed to do work on the house. She showed her dad the guy’s face, and dad didn’t recognize him. So they dashed out of the house to the neighbors while dad dashed home.
