British police have launched a search to locate to carjackers after they drove off in a woman’s car in Birmingham with her 4-week-old baby in the back seat.
The carjackers left the newborn baby at a health centre around 45 minutes later.
The incident happened yesterday afternoon when Clare O’Neill and her daughter Eliza arrived at their home when two men demanded the keys to the car.
The mother did her best to get her baby out of the car but the carjackers drove her Audi A3 away from the scene at speed.
A huge police response was immediately launched but thank God, an ambulance crew at Small Heath health centre found little Eliza, still in her car seat and and described by police as “blissfully unaware of the drama she had been involved in”.
Mother and baby were reunited shortly afterwards in hosptial.
Detective Inspector Jim Munro, of West Midlands Police, told Sky: “This incident has shocked the whole of our force area and we will leave no stone unturned in our search for the offenders.
“We have a team of officers trawling through CCTV and speaking to residents in Marie Drive, as well as fast-tracking forensic analysis of the baby seat.”
