Parents Melanie and Aaron Richman Attack Carjacker in Kansas City to Save Their Baby

They were standing just a few yards away, talking to family in the final hours of a long road trip, when a man jumped into their idling car at a Kansas City, Mo., gas station and sped off with their 6-month-old daughter strapped in the back seat.

The parents run the car down, bust out the windows and proceed to beat the guy. Never give up, never surrender! Watch the video available at the link.

Cops say you should call them and not be a “hero”. I wonder how that would have worked out here?

    I’m glad to see the actual article, our news ran this story but I could swear they said the parents had gone in to the store and left the child alone. Thinking they had left the child in the car made me immediately think they were morons. But now seeing the complete story I realize they aren’t at all and indeed did the right thing to save their child.

    There are times when somebody needs to be a hero. Usually it’s someone else. Sometimes it’s not.

    These parents have my respect. They damn sure earned it.
