What unfolds in this footage from Australia is every parent's nightmare. As a father is on an evening walk with his two-year-old son and dog, a man suddenly attempts to kidnap the toddler right out of his arms. A full-on brawl breaks out as the father desperately tries to protect his son, and is finally brought to an end when good samaritans intervene. The attacker, who was reportedly suffering from a drug-induced psychosis at the time, has since been sentenced to 4 and a half years in jail.
