CCTV caught footage of a little girl jumping out of a moving car!
When the children’s mother was in a shop a car thief stole her vehicle with her children still inside. The scared youngster jumped out of the moving vehicle. She sustained some bruises and grazes from the stunt. Her little brother was found five blocks away. A couple found the baby and even changed his diapers and gave him a drink.
The car thief is still at large! He is described as a Caucasian male in his early twenties.
Detective Inspector Chris Rixon commented:
“I am appealing to anyone who has any information that could assist with the investigation to get in contact.
“The suspect is an opportunist who showed little regard for the welfare and the safety of the children.
“What happened is every parent’s worst nightmare and I’m specifically appealing for the suspect to give himself up now before it is too late.
“All the victims involved have been put through an awful ordeal, none more so than the little 12-year-old girl.
“The fact that she threw herself out of moving vehicle just shows how frightened she was.
“She is a very fortunate little girl as the situation could have been so much worse, it could have resulted in her sustaining significant injuries or could have resulted in her dying had she been hit by an oncoming car.”
The little girl’s grandfather added:
“We didn’t realise how bad it was until we saw the footage.Watching it, it was terrifying. She must have been in the hands of angels to have survived. She is still really traumatised and will need counselling.”
