LAPD officers responded to a stolen vehicle call and followed the suspect for several minutes through busy rush hour streets. 

ABC7's chopper was above the crazy scene as the suspect eventually jumped out of the moving vehicle and attempted to carjack a woman with a baby in the backseat.

Check out the video to see how the good guys came out on top of this one.

joey _ I love TMZ 'til ya piss me off!    

Her reaction, according to Biologists & Doctors, is a common "reflex" reaction. "It is almost an instantaneous movement in response or any unexpected stimulus." Most people regain their faculties within approximately 10 seconds, so that is why she automatically jumped out so quickly & then returned for her child. Not only lock your doors, but don't have the paasenger window down to a point where someone can reach in. When someone is in the adrenaline state like the carjacker and open the door, even though we think it would take somebody a long time to get the door open. I read that in a Carjack Safety Book to help the public and explain the feelings that we experience.

hmmmmm    

That mother's reaction was completely normal. Her flight instinct kicked in because that is the way humans are wired and, because she's an excellent mother, she went back into the fray to rescue her child. Hopefully you'll never be placed in that situation because you might not pass such a test of parental love.

Come one people...that mother forgot about her child for a split second and ran for her life...lol. Then she hesitates and goes back for the child....wow! I mean wow! And I don't wanna hear any comments about 'oh she just did what her instincts told her to do first which is run'. I know without a doubt I would have thought of my child first! Not as an after thought!

That woman definitely started to run away before she remembered there was a child in the backseat. Way to go, lady.

That woman was an idiot. I drive car that was made in '07 and while my doors don't automatically lock, the first thing I do after getting in my car is lock the damn doors.

And I understand her being scared because some douche just tried to carjack her, but WTF. She didn't jump out of the car as he was trying to get in, she jumped AFTER the cops had already pulled him out and had him tackled to the ground. Not to mention the fact she didn't put her car in park and/or put on the emergency break before jumped out and it looked like she forgot her kid.

Just one big giant FAIL, in my opinion.
