Heroic Mom Fights Armed Carjackers

A recent video of a heroic mom fighting off criminals has caught the attention of thousands. Surveillance video from a gas station in Hialeah, Florida shows a mother pumping gas while her children waited in the car on Monday evening. An armed carjacker jumped into the driver's seat of her car while an accomplice banged on the passenger car window.

The mother didn't run, she rushed to the driver's side of her car and pulled the carjacker out. Both carjackers can be seen running away from the scene.

According to Hialeah Police Department, three suspects were detained after a short chase. Two males and one female were arrested and face charges of attempted carjacking and eluding the police.

The mother's bravery paid off. "The woman and her kids were unharmed," Sgt. Carl Zogby of the Hialeah Police Department told ABC News.
