Damn this is scary!
An Alabama woman narrowly escaped from her kidnapper by jumping from the trunk of her moving car.
The 25-year-old was allegedly abducted by a man who held her at gunpoint in front of her apartment and forced the woman into her own car.
Police are still searching for the suspect who reportedly robbed the Birmingham resident on Tuesday. He then made her get into her car before driving to multiple locations, and was believed to be using her card to get money.
But the woman made a brave escape when her captor stopped at a local gas station, later telling police she was able to open the trunk just as the man started driving off.
Surveillance footage showed the woman jumping from the moving Nissan Altima and falling to the ground before running inside the station to call 911. ABC News shared the video on Twitter:

Station owner Yosef AlSabah told NBC News that the vehicle arrived at around 11:40 p.m. and the suspect asked for help withdrawing money from the station’s ATM.
AlSabah said the man got angry when he was unable to withdraw money, and briskly returned to the car to drive away — that’s when the victim suddenly jumped out of the car. He recalled:
“I saw the trunk popped up, a woman ran inside.”
Birmingham Police released a photo of the suspect, showing surveillance footage of a black man wearing a hat and striped cardigan. The department tweeted:
