Not a Humblebrag, but interesting thing just happened...

So I'm leaving my house to meet the family for a late lunch. I get to the end of the street, and running along the parallel street is a girl, 8-9 years old, wearing only a diaper. I roll down the window to try and ask where she's supposed to be, and she keeps running. I get out and follow her for a while, and she runs onto 78 highway and starts running down through traffic.
My daughter was in my car, so I didn't want to follow this girl too far, but some other people had stopped, I made sure they had called 911, and went back to my car.
I get in my car and turn the direction she was running, and she had made it quite a way, and traffic was stopped in all directions. Several older people were trying to grab her and hold her with little success. I'm a SPED teacher, and CPI certified (basically how to hold children who are a danger to themselves or others), so I pull off the road, and go step in to put her in a "child protective hold." She was, understandably, scared out of her mind, unable to communicate, and spent the whole time (till police arrived) trying to hit, kick, and bite me and others (the hold was difficult, as she had no clothes on, and was sweaty from running.
So anyway, cops showed up, got my info, and I left. But now I'm always gonna be wondering what that was all about, if she's safe, etc.

If nothing else they could take your contact information and relay it to the parents or guardian of the child.

Glad you do the work you do, it's not for everyone it requires great patience and the ability to try to help those who may never have the ability to thank you for what you do.
It is sad but there definitely is truth in the statement of "No good deed goes unpunished".

I tried to do the right thing a few years ago. Delivering pizzas, I saw some kid just bite it on his bike. Pulled over, offered to help...but I was a strange man in a car...so I got out of the car and approached...and realized with every step and every word I was just scaring the shit out of these kids. I didn't want to leave him there crying, and one of his friends went to grab the kid's parents. When dad finally showed up, he didn't even notice my existence, barely nodded at me when I tried to explain what I saw.

It was weird, and really made me realize why many people DON'T get involved when they see stuff like that.

Good on you. You had the tools and knowledge to take care of the situation. Kudos.

I was definitely concerned when I stepped in to restrain that it would look like I was somehow attacking this girl, so I made sure to, loudly, say who I was and what my training was, and basically play-by-play my every movement;
"I'm sitting in the ground with her. I'm grabbing her left wrist with my right hand, and folding it under her arm so she can't hit or bite. This is called a CPI child protective hold," etc...
All the while trying to calmly talk to the girl and let her know I wasn't trying to hurt her, although she wasn't in a reasonable place internally, so there was no reasoning with her.
When the first police officer for there and walked up, I let go of one arm, thinking he'd take over, but he just looked at me and said, "If you've got her, I just want you to stay there while I figure out..."
So at the very least I knew he didn't think I was doing anything wrong.

After that my only real worry was that there was a crowd, and my car was 50 yards away with my daughter in it. I never lost sight of it, and traffic be damned, if someone headed toward my car I'd have let go of this girl immediately.
Twice I asked people to go check on my daughter and tell her daddy would be right over.
Turns out she had unbuckled herself and was watching the whole time... So she had TONS of questions.
Leading me to realize how difficult it is to explain LD to a 4-year old without demeaning another person.
