10-year-old girl grabs 2-year-old sister, jumps as carjacker drives away with car

A 10-year-old California girl is being hailed as a hero after her quick thinking saved herself and her 2-year-old sister from a kidnapping.

Redlands police said suspect Cory Michael Ahumada jumped into a car at a 7-11 gas station with children inside when the mother went inside to pay, according to KCAL9.

As the car was driving away, the older girl grabbed her sister and jumped from the car. It was caught on video:

KCAL9’s Crystal Cruz spoke to two eyewitnesses to the abduction.

“We could hear her [the mom] screaming, no, no, no,” said Deriree Aguila.

She and husband, Robert Aguila, were at the gas station when the attempted abduction took place.

The couple said the mother was in the car for only a few seconds when the suspect jumped into her car.

“It was horrible,” said Deriree Aguila. “Everybody in the store was crying. The clerks were crying.”

Aguila thinks the 10-year-old should be commended for acting so fast.

“That little girl is a hero. She saved her and her baby sister. The instinct of a small child is amazing.”

Robert Aguila remembered the touching reunion between mother and children.

“Once we got her inside the store,” he said, “she was all emotions. It just hit her. She was hugging onto all of them. She didn’t want to let them go.”
