Minions: they’re everywhere. On top the box office, in your social media feeds, lurking on street corners, taking over the whole world. But despite the slow and irksome Minion creep toward pop culture domination, they took the time to save a child’s life.

According to a police report from Colorado Springs, a little girl was saved by her stuffed Minion doll when she fell from a third-story window on Thursday night. The five-year-old and her heroic Minon had been playing in her bedroom when she fell backwards out of a nearby window.

“Fortunately, when the child fell out of the window she continued holding on to a stuffed Minion teddy bear that is believed to have cushioned her fall,” the police report (via NYDN) said.

It looks like the evil of Minions can be harnessed for good.
