Now I totally understand not being ready for certain situations that may happen in life, but i'm not 100% sure this would have been my instinct in this type of situation. If this was you and your child what would you do ? and do you feel he was wrong for what he did ?. In a way he did make the attention go towards him and away from his child, but on the other hand if that didn't work out that way than his child would have been left in danger also, so im not sure how to feel, just thankful this didn't turn out worst.
