Watch This Mom Fight Off Armed Carjackers With Her Bare Hands!

Two carjackers sent this mom-of-two into full-on Mama Bear mode.

Have you ever wondered how far you'd go to save your kids if push came to shove?

A couple of teenage carjackers picked the wrong mom to mess with when they tried to steal her car after she got out to pump some gas.

Surveillance video from a gas station in Hialeah, Florida shows two women pumping gas—one at a minivan, the other at a convertible. Then suddenly, two masked men armed with guns run up to the women with their firearms drawn. The suspects approached the minivan first, but the driver jumped into her vehicle and quickly locked the doors. When the suspects began hitting the windows with their guns, the woman drove off.

Smart thinking!

So the men then turned their attention to the convertible at the next pump, where the driver's 1-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son were inside.

When one of the suspects attempted to get in the driver's seat, the mom—fearing her kids would be abducted—sprang into action. She grabbed the suspect in the driver's seat, pulled off his mask and basically threw him out of her car with her bare hands! Then she slammed the door shut and headed back over to the pump to pump her gas (like a boss)!

The suspects can then be seen running off. According to police, they jumped into a getaway vehicle to flee the scene, and after a quick pursuit that ended in a crash, the getaway vehicle was searched. Three hand guns were confiscated, and the suspects were arrested for attempted carjacking, fleeing, and eluding the police.

Way to go, Mama Bear!
