An Alabama woman saved herself from being kidnapped during a harrowing incident in Birmingham on Tuesday.
According to police, the woman was walking home when a man approached her with a gun and demanded money. After telling the suspect she didn't have any, the man forced her into the trunk of a car.
After the suspect drove to a gas station, the courageous woman was able to force open the trunk of the car and jump out just as it was starting to pull away. She then ran inside and called 911 for help, while a store worker hid her in a back room until police arrived. Authorities are still searching for the suspect.
