Surveillance video from a gas station shows an 11-year-old girl jump out of a moving vehicle that had been carjacked in suburban Chicago.
The girl was inside the vehicle at the time it was carjacked in a gas station parking lot and is seen jumping out of the car's rear door and rolling on the ground as the car drives away. The video also shows the girl's father jumping onto the roof of an accomplice's vehicle, trying to get it to stop.
The father is later seen walking back towards his daughter and hugging her before police arrive. Neither of them were hurt.
Police arrested one of the thieves and charged him with aggravated unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle and fleeing and eluding police, according to CBS News. His accomplice remains at large.
