ABC News reports on a ten-year-old girl who put her martial arts training to good use when an abductor threw her into the trunk of his car:
When the kidnapper stopped for gas, Marissa, who takes martial arts classes, kicked her way out of the trunk. She then walked into the store and calmly told the clerk that she had just escaped.
Marissa's instincts were right on, some observers say. Putting up a fight can call attention to an abduction, and that can make the difference between getting away and getting killed.
Good job, young Ms. Graham!
