Police Helicopter Spots Children Laying In Odd Pattern, Take Immediate Action When They Realize Why

During an Easter egg hunt in Capel, Surrey, a group of 30 children and adults unexpectedly collaborated with law enforcement. While they were hunting for eggs, the National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopter was scouting the area due to a burglary report at a nearby disused building.

Realizing a police pursuit was underway, the quick-thinking children formed a massive arrow on a ploughed field, pointing towards the fleeing suspects. “Their resourcefulness proved invaluable in aiding the police,” said NPAS Sergeant Paul Sochon, who likened the event to an Enid Blyton adventure.

The helicopter team, impressed by the children’s actions, landed to offer thanks and shared chocolate treats. The day concluded with the arrest of two suspects, aged 28 and 27, on burglary charges, showcasing the power of community and the incredible impact of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.
