A group of kids in England ruined the getaway of a pair of burglars on the run from a police helicopter.

The children were gathered with their parents in Surrey for an Easter egg hunt when the two men ran across the field followed by a police helicopter shortly thereafter, CNN reported.

At that point, the youngsters knew what was going on and knew what to do.

“The children quickly formed an arrow on the ground in the middle of a plowed field to guide the helicopter in the direction of the fleeing pair,” the police said in a statement. “The helicopter crew relayed this information to officers on the ground and a short time later two men were arrested.”

Sgt. Paul Sochon praised the children for their help.

“I’m sure the last thing the group of daring Capel residents expected when they set out on Friday afternoon was to abandon their Easter egg hunt to assist us in a police search, but the initiative they demonstrated proved to be invaluable,” he said.

Two men, 27 and 28, were arrested and released on bail until May 13, CNN reported.
