I keep telling people over and over again–if you are being hijacked do NOT get in the car with your attackers. Under no circumstances do you get in the car. They will only take you someplace where you are at their mercy. In this case the victim was lucky: they only took her to ATM’s to get more money than she had in her pocket. But what if they wanted more? What if she didn’t have an ATM account?
According to the story she was kidnapped about 1 p.m. from a parking lot in a shopping mall. If you aren’t safe there, what makes you think you will be safer if you go with the kidnappers? You aren’t! Don’t go with him/them!
