“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” can list “lifesaver” among its list of accomplishments. In case you missed it, a young girl in Florida used what she learned watching the show to help catch the man who tried to kidnap her.
Alyssa was waiting on the bus when a man tried to snatch her. She fought him off and smeared the blue slime she was playing with on his arm. She said she learned that trick from watching the “Law & Order” show.
When Mariska Hargitay heard about the story, she sang Alyssa’s praises on The ‘Gram. “First and most important, I am so relieved and grateful to know that you are safe,” she told her. “I am so honored to be part of your incredible story. You are one BRAVE, Strong and Smart young woman. I think the SVU squad might have to add slime to their crime fighting gear!” She signed off with, “With all my love, your number one fan, Mariska.”
