Nothing – and we mean NOTHING – can stop a mother from protecting her children.

Nowhere is that more evident than in Hialeah, Fla., where a woman fought off a carjacker from stealing her vehicle with her kids inside it.

Two men failed in their attempt to carjack another car at a gas station on Monday night, so they then tried to make off with the woman's convertible. Surveillance cameras caught the woman opening the driver's door and ripping a ski mask off the face of one of the suspects, sending him and the other man -- who had jumped into the passenger seat -- running away.

The two men fled to a waiting getaway car being driven by a woman. Police later arrested all three.
