Mom chases car thief to get baby back

November 24, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
In Kansas City, Missouri, a young mother risked her life to save her baby when a carjacker took off with her baby still inside. The entire scene was caught on surveillance cameras.

The mother and father stopped to get gas. They walked away from the car for just a moment.

That's when the carjacker jumped in the car and took off.

The mother, who did not want to be identified, sprung into action.

"I ended up busting out the window with my elbow and lost my footing so I started getting dragged because I wouldn't let go of the car. And I just kept saying 'my baby, my baby, my baby,'" said the mother.

Her husband busted out another window. The carjacker then crashed the car and took off running.

The baby made it through the ordeal without a scratch. Her parents have minor injuries.
