Just as a man was about to get some shut-eye in his room at the Sunnyside Motel in Vancouver, Washington, he heard screaming outside that sent him into action immediately and ended with him being hailed a local hero for his efforts.

KPTV reports that Don Gilbert was sitting in his motel room when he heard a young girl screaming outside his room sometime around 9:00 p.m.

Gilbert’s first reaction was to grab his baseball bat and head for the door. When he got outside he saw the horrifying scene unfolding in the parking lot.

Kyle Holder, 32, was beating and kicking his 2-year-old daughter on the pavement in the parking lot. Gilbert sprung into action fast, heading straight for Holder.

“I hit him once in the back. He had the baby by his feet,” Gilbert explained. “He took her to the curb and just slammed her down, and that’s when I cracked him in the skull three or four times.”

When Holder was asked why he was brutally attacking his daughter, he gave this sickening reason.

“I did not want to kill her, but I had to. I had to hold my daughter and crush her head so she could go up to the sky,” Holder said.

Gilbert went on to explain how “He was just babbling about God’s coming for everyone and he’s got to get the evil out of his daughter.”

The girl was taken straight to the hospital in critical condition. The girl's sadistic father on the other hand was taken to jail and faces attempted first-degree murder charges.

According to police, Gilbert is not said to face any charges for his heroic intervention.

Many are calling Gibert a hero for his actions, but Gilbert insists he is no hero. He said he was doing what any human being would have done in that scenario.

“The question is, why wouldn’t somebody do this?" Gilbert asked. “If more people took time to care less about themselves and more about innocent people, we wouldn’t have the crap going on in the world we do now.”
