  • Introduction to Video Content
  • A Las Vegas man who helped rescue abused boys locked in a cage credits God for his intervention. The man, Keith Archerbald, works as a maintenance worker at the extended stay America hotel near the Las Vegas Strip. When he encountered the children's father and stepmother across the street from the hotel, he convinced the children to open the door to their room. Inside, he discovered six children, two of whom were locked in a cage. One of the boys had been badly beaten and had wounds all over his body. Archerbald, along with Metro officers, worked to free the children and bring them to safety. Despite his heroic actions, Archerbald remains humble and questions what can be done to prevent similar crimes from occurring behind closed doors.
