The incident started when the family of Yara Alaa El-Din, the girl who captured the chase on her mobile phone and posted the video online, noticed a man covering his face and was in a hurry to ride his car.
Alaa El-Din said, in an interview with TV host Wael El Ebrashy, she saw someone, in the back seat of the car, trying to resist by moving his hands and legs fiercely.
Alaa El-Din told her father about the kidnappers’ car, he immediately started the engine and went after the kidnappers.
Alaa El-Din’s mother screamed and called on the pedestrians in the streets to stop the car while the chase was ongoing, they hadn’t thought of the possibility of the kidnappers carrying guns.
