Don Gilbert was relaxing in his hotel room at the Sunnyside Motel in Vancouver, Washington. At approximately 9PM he heard the chilling sound of a child screaming. Gilbert grabbed his baseball bat and rushed outside. What he saw was extremely psychotic.
Kyle Holder was beating his 2-year-old daughter violently in the parking lot. Holder believed he had to kill his 2-year-old daughter so that she could “go up to the sky.” After throwing his child out of a hotel window he began throwing her around the parking lot and stomping on her head. At one point in time, Holder had his daughter by her feet and was bashing her head off a curb. Gilbert jumped into action:
Gilbert swung with his baseball bat and hit Holder a few times. Gilbert then kept Holder away from the 2-year-old until authorities could arrive. When the police arrived at the scene, they had to taze Holder because he was “out of control:”
“I hit him once in the back. He had the baby by his feet. 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. He was just babbling about God’s coming for everyone and he’s got to get the evil out of his daughter.”
Thank God Gilbert was in the area when this lunatic decided to try to kill his own child. We wish her the best and hope she has a speedy and full recovery.
