A heroic 10-year-old girl saved herself and her 2-year-old sister Sunday when she jumped from a moving car that had just been stolen.

The suspect, identified as Cory Ahumada, stole the car when the children’s mother went into a southern California gas station. Surveillance video shows the mom chasing the car as it sped off.

The quick-thinking 10-year-old girl grabbed her toddler sister and leapt from the moving vehicle. The two girls suffered some abrasions, but are OK.

"She saved her and her baby sister,” witness Desiree Aguila said of the older girl. “The instinct of a small child is amazing.”

Ahumada is still at large.
