Burglar Breaks Into Home But Quick-Thinking Nanny Steps in Just In Time


It was a normal day when an intruder broke into the California home of the child that nanny Jenna Lee Baker was watching. According to a report by the Inside Edition, Baker and the boy were out running errands when a burglar broke into the home looking for valuables to steal.

As shown on the family’s security footage, the suspect went from room to room, frantically searching for worthy items to take. He even went through the nanny’s Baker’s bag in the kitchen.  The burglar was still inside the house when Baker and the boy came back home. However, she could tell something was amiss.

She quickly grabbed the boy and ran to a neighbor’s house. Apparently, Baker’s instinct was right because as soon as they ran out of the house the burglar was running behind them. “It was sheer panic,” she said. The security camera caught both Baker and the thief running in opposite directions.

“What she did for my son, what she does daily is unbelievable. I’m so grateful that she’s in our lives,” said the boy’s father and homeowner Jonathan Lai in an interview with Inside Edition. “To have him go inside my kids’ rooms and see him walking in was the most scary for me.”

Lai was even more spooked after learning that his son almost had a personal encounter with the thief if not for the quick reaction of their nanny.

While the family gave her much praise, Baker believed that she just did what she had to do under the circumstances because it was her responsibility. “I don’t think of myself as a hero. I love him. When his parents are away, they put their trust in me to keep him safe,” said Baker.
