No one was going to beat up his big sister -- no one. Not even her opponent in her wrestling match.
Ryan Pendergast, 5, was wrestling against a girl his age in an elementary wrestling league, WFLA reported.
But one little boy wasn’t having any of it.
The 2-year-old rushed out to save his big sister, Ruby, from Ryan, despite it being a sporting event, The Huffington Post reported.
All the kids fell down and the referee was joined by a parent to break up the wrestling match turned melee.
The gym was filled with laughter as the adults broke up the scuffle.
