A Massachusetts mother risks her life to safe her twin toddlers from a moving vehicle. Kimberly Bookman reports the woman's motherly instincts kicked in when she thought her children's lives were in danger. Bound to a wheelchair, unable to walk, 22-year-old Mindy Tran's left knee is crushed, her right lef dislocated leg from her hip. All because she was trying to save her twin toddlers from a rolling car. "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 says. It happened March 6, just days after signing a lease at her New Lawrence apartment She backed her Honda into the garage, put it in park and had her 2-year-olds buckled into the back seat when she says she got out to lock her front door and saw the car moving. "I was like, what is going on and I see my daughter sitting there in the backseat and of course my first instinct is I have to push the car back into the driveway," Trans says. Afraid the car would go right down her steep driveway and into busy Marsten Street, her motherly instincts kicked in. "My daughters are my everything, my everything and I don't want to see them in the hospital and I knew at that time it was either mine or there's," Trans says. That's when new neighbors ran to help, jumping into the car, stopping it and getting the girls out safely. Firefighters arrived and stabilized the car with wooden blocks, then used an airbag to lift it off her. "Mindy has been in and out of hospitals ever since March 6, has another surgery set for Wednesday and there's no end in sight," says WCVB Reporter Kimberly Bookman. Knowing there's a long recovery ahead, Mindy vows she'll walk again, perhaps even run after those kids she sacrificed everything for. "It was all for my kids," Tran says. "I'm just glad my kids are fine."
