Melissa Smith, 28, from Wisconsin has been praised by many for her bravery and courage to stop a thief who tried to steal her car from succeeding.
In video shared online by BBC on Twitter, Melissa was shown at a petrol filling station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, filling her car when the thief sneaked into her car and tried to drive away. But to his disbelief, the fearless woman boldly reacted by jumping and clinging to the hood of her car as the carjacker tried to drive off with her.
The frustrated thief who seems to have his gang members around, couldn’t stand the woman’s braveness, so he gave up and got away in a car waiting for him, leaving Melissa to run after her moving vehicle. The brave and lucky woman in an interview with BBC, disclosed that it wasn’t until later that she had considered the potential danger of her actions.
