Mom Uses Body as Speed Bump to Stop Car and Save Twin Toddlers

(CNN) - A young mother in Massachusetts saved her children by using her body as a speed bump.

WCVB says Mindy Tran had just pulled in to the garage and put her car in park. Her twin toddlers were buckled in, in the back seat.

However, when Tran got out, the car started rolling away.

She did the first thing she could think of.

“I had to use myself as a speed bump to slow it down enough for one of my neighbors to get in and completely stop the car.”

Tran's legs were seriously injured but she says she's just glad her kids are okay.

      Or ignoring the fact that a small human will do little to nothing to stop or slow down a 2000 lb rolling object. Very strange story.

    Did either of you watch the video? Fairly steep driveway leading onto a busy street. Who knows what you would have done in her situation.
