Girl escapes minivan moments before it’s stolen

A 7-year-old Michigan girl jumped out of her mom’s minivan just moments before a man stole it.

Surveillance video from a Valero store in Detroit shows the little girl run away from the van and into the store.

WXYZ reports that the girl’s mother was inside the store when it happened, but she rushed out and got into another customer’s car to chase down the stolen minivan.

The clerk who was working in the store at the time said the woman likely thought her daughter was still inside the van when it was taken.

The clerk took care of the girl until her mom returned with family members, all of them relieved to find the girl safe.
