According to Daily Mail, Amanda Beaudry, 27, was offered $100 by two thugs, Kelvin Houston, 23, and Stephane Johnson, 20, to give them a ride. When she refused, Houston fled, but Johnson jumped into the front seat of the car with Beaudry’s daughter Scarlett in the backseat.
That’s when Beaudry lost it.
“I guess my mother bear instincts kicked in,” the mother recounted. “You really don’t have any other option than to protect your own.”
“He dove right in and I dove in [on the passenger’s side] and he threw the car into reverse,” she continued. “The car was in reverse going. I don’t know how I did it, but somehow, I struggled with him and got it into… got it off and broke the key off.”
After she had broken the key, Beaudry was able to get the car into park as Johnson screamed in protest. Police quickly arrived at the scene, and they told the mother that Houston and Johnson were both wanted for stealing another car and dumping it into a lake.
Though she is now being hailed as a hero, Beaudry says any mother would have done the same thing.

We applaud this mom and also say this is something that if you decide to do it, think it through. This was dangerous, but we are glad she came out on top.
