(KNBC-TV) A cook at a taco stand is being hailed a hero after he stopped a man from kidnapping a 4-year-old boy from his nanny.

Jesus Delgado was working the grill at T2 Tacos in Westchester Wednesday when he heard a woman screaming for help.

Delgado sprang into action, running out of the restaurant. The boy’s nanny pointed up the street after the man who snatched the boy from her, and Delgado bolted across Manchester Boulevard, the owner of T2 Tacos said.
