Nita Belles describes a previous Super Bowl rescue operation.  She tells about spotting a drunk 12-year-old girl, calling police and following the girl until officers arrived.

 “I dialed 911 and then I kind of followed her to keep in visual contact with her.  When we followed her around across the street, there was a parking lot where pimps were dropping off the girls for dates and the dates were coming in and it was basically an exchange parking lot we were at the corner of the parking lot at the corner of the street. And we had a camera man with us that was not nearly as wonderful as you guys and he didn’t realize he was putting us all in danger.  He had a camera on a stick and he was taking photos and we had to stop at that street corner because we didn’t want to get too close to the victim and I was waiting for the  police to make contact. So we stood there and a pimp pulled up on the corner and shone his lights on me at the corner. Then another pimp car pulled up on the street there and another one pulled up here and we were standing there, but I couldn’t lose visual contact with the girl, but we were surrounded and frankly I was just praying.”

 “And what happened? ” asked Chris Hayes.

“And I watched the police officer make contact and I got us out of there.” said Nita Belles.

“And the girls were rescued?” asked Hayes.

“And the girl was rescued, yes.” sais Belles.
