11 Year Old Jumps Out of Car, Escapes Carjacking


HAS THE POTENTIAL TO RISE TO THE SURFACE. BUT THEY SAY THE IRRUPTION SHOWS NO SIGNS OF SLOWING DOWN. AS FOR TODAY’S EARTHQUAKE, NO SERIOUS DAMAGE HAS BEEN REPORTED. BACK HERE, A YOUNG GIRL ESCAPES A CARJACKING BY LEAPING FROM THIS VEHICLE. IT HAPPENED AT A GAS STATION IN AURORA. CBS 2’S DANA KOZLOV FOUND THE BRAVE YOUNG GIRL, HER STORY IS ALL NEW AT 10:00. I DID NOT WANT HIM TO TAKE ME. WHAT IF HE HAD A WEAPON? Reporter: THAT’S 11-YEAR-OLD KAYLA’S SIMPLE EXPLANATION FOR HER BRAVERY ESCAPE FROM A CARJACKER THIS MORNING. SHE WAS IN THE BACKSEAT OF HER DAD’S CAR AT THIS AURORA GAS STATION, WHEN A MAN JUMPED IN, DROVE OFF, AND KAYLA JUMPED OUT OF THE MOVING CAR. WERE YOU AFRAID TO JUMP OUT? I WAS A LITTLE AFRAID TO JUMP OUT BUT NOT REALLY BECAUSE I KNEW THAT I WOULD BE OKAY. BECAUSE AT LEAST I’M NOT IN THE CAR. Reporter: SECURITY VIDEO CUT IT ALL. MARK SAYS HE JUST PUT HIS CREDIT CARD IN THE PUMPS TO PAY WHEN IT HAPPENED. ALL I REMEMBER WAS MY DAD POUNDING ON THE WINDOWS AND SAYING, “MY DAUGHTER IS IN THE CAR.” SHE WAS SCREAMING IN THE CAR AND HE DID NOT EVEN BOTHER TO LOOK BACK AT HER OR A COLLEGE MAY. Reporter: SECURITY VIDEO SHOWS THE FATHER’S — THE FATHER HUGGING HIS DAUGHTER. THE WHOLE ORDEAL IS HARD FOR MARK AND KAYLA TO BELIEVE, BUT THIS DAD IS GRATEFUL THEY WEREN’T HURT. I’M PROUD OF HER. I COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD. Reporter: MARK WAS STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO HIS CAR HERE BUT HAD LEFT HIS KEYS IN THE IGNITION.
