A terrifying ordeal involving one of former Toronto Maple Leaf Patrick Marleau’s children unfolded final week.
The NHLer’s spouse Christina detailed in a collection of tweets on Wednesday how the couple’s 12-year-old son Brody was “almost kidnapped” throughout a household vacation.
“Brody had gone down to the hotel pool to grab his sunglasses he had forgot,” Christina wrote on her c_marleau account, which has greater than 25,000 followers.
“A woman started to follow him around, asking (him) questions, getting closer and closer. She was soon reaching out for him, trying to get him to go with her and her partner. Another family saw this happening and saved him. I owe them a thank you I cannot even describe.”
Our son was virtually kidnapped tonight. And I have to thank the Headlam household from Louisiana, the mother Jessica and pa saved Brody from a pair who was following him. Brody had gone all the way down to the resort pool to seize his sun shades he had forgot.

Christina gave due to “the Headlam family from Louisiana, the mom Jessica and dad” for “saving” the couple’s son.
“You are angels on Earth,” she stated. “And for the scum of the earth that think they can (prey) on children … there is a special place in hell for you. And there are good people who will stop you.”
Christina Marleau didn’t identify the resort or the town concerned.
“When Brody called, we rushed down to him,” she tweeted.
“When I saw the woman who tried to grab him at the bar, I let her know that cops had been called, hotel security was watching her and she needs to leave. Meanwhile, Mrs Headlam, unbeknownst to me, was already grabbing security as well.”

The Marleaus have 4 kids and Brody is their second, in line with the New York Post .
Marleau, a local of Aneroid, Sask., was chosen second general by the Sharks in the 1997 NHL draft and spent most of his profession there. He performed with the Leafs from 2017-19.

The 42-year-old ahead, the NHL’s all-time chief in video games performed, is at the moment a free agent.
“Thank you to everyone that reached out,” Christina tweeted.
“I shared this because A) it happened so quickly, B) Brody is very aware of his surroundings, knows what to watch for but still targeted, C) a woman was the aggressor. But mostly because of the Good Samaritans that intervened. We are lucky.”
