A mother’s quick thinking caught the attention of netizens after a video clip of her noticing a thief entering her home while breastfeeding her baby went viral. The incident was initially reported by the Vietnamese website, but has since been shared widely on social media, with users praising the woman’s sharp instincts and presence of mind.

The video shows a mother cradling her infant and breastfeeding in a bedroom where a television screen connected to the house’s security cameras is present. As she casually glances at the screen, she suddenly realises something is amiss—a man wearing a hat is intruding on her home late at night. The burglar heads straight toward the electric bicycle, attempting to unlock it, Sanook reported.

Without hesitation, the breastfeeding mother, while still holding her child in her arms, shouts out to her husband downstairs…

“Husband! Husband! Thief! Thief! Husband! They’re stealing the bike!”
