Jenny Lee Baker, a nanny in Southern California, found herself in a terrifying and potentially hazardous scenario early last month. She’d been out running errands with the 3-year-old she looks after, and when she got home, something made the hair on the back of her neck stand on end.
Her instincts were correct.
As it turned out, a burglar had broken into the Irvine home and was skulking around upstairs. Security tape showed him tossing the contents of a pocketbook onto a kitchen tabletop before Jenna went in, then moving from room to room looking for valuables.
“To have him going into my kids’ rooms, it’s the scariest thing to me,” said the toddler’s father, Jonathan Lai.
When Jenna and the toddler came home, the intruder scrambled down the stairs. Meanwhile, Jenna scooped up the little boy and ran out the door, taking safety at a neighbor’s house.
“We’re so grateful that she’s in our life because of what she did for my son,” Jonathan said.
The burglar has yet to be apprehended, but Jenna is being hailed as a hero for her actions that day. She does not, however, consider herself a hero. I adore him. When his parents are away, they rely on me to keep him safe.”
