9 Year Old Girl Jumps Off Kidnapper’s Car
A nine-year-old girl in Bulawayo suffered a fractured arm, leg, and swollen face after jumping out of a speeding vehicle to escape her kidnapper.
The courageous child and her guardian boarded a Nissan Probox from her school in the Famona suburb, bound for the city centre.
According to a source, “the unsuspecting woman alighted from the car at first believing that the child was following her, but to her utter surprise when she turned back to check on the child, she saw the car speeding away with her.”
The woman was at a loss for words.
“I didn’t know what to do as I watched the car speeding. I tried to run after it but I could not. I was left speechless and worried that maybe the kidnapper had taken my child to kill her,” she said.
While the car was speeding, the child threw her satchel out of the window and when it reduced speed she bolted out of the car, B metro reports.
“She opened the door and jumped out of the car. Unfortunately, her left foot got trapped and she was dragged for a few metres.
She later managed to pull out her leg,” said the source.
The brave child sustained a fractured arm, leg and a swollen face.
The incident was reported to the police. Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident and appealed for information that could lead to the arrest of the kidnapper.
“Anyone with information which could lead to the whereabouts of the driver of the Nissan Probox registration number AFW 1740 should phone any nearest police station or call us on 029-60358,” he said.
