CCTV footage from a petrol garage shows a daring escape by a woman who had been forced into the boot of a car.

The young woman was allegedly kidnapped at gunpoint. After her kidnapper stopped at the garage, she managed to open the boot of the moving car and make her way to safety as he pulled out to leave.

She is seen hitting the floor and rolling before she gets up and runs into the garage’s shop.

She alerts the man she meets in the shop, who then ushers her into a back room of the store to hide, while telling another man in the store to call the police.

The incident happened in Alabama, US.
