A mother remained stranded in the middle of the road with her young children after her car was stolen by a thief in a brutal carjacking.
Jana McMiken was standing in front of her car in Auckland, New Zealand, and was preparing to place her young son in the vehicle when she heard the car turn on.
The young mother was in a parking garage on Ti Rakau Drive on Friday afternoon and had put the keys in the contact of the Toyota Corolla to open the windows, let in some cool air and put her things in the car.
Mrs. McMiken told the NZ Herald she then stood in front of the car and helped her three-year-old son Billy on his rubber boots when the car started to move.

The mother turned to see the car driving away, with one of the rubber boots still on the hood.
Holding her one year old son, McMiken panicked and ran to the car. She hit the back window and tried to draw attention to the incident.
Most people who experienced the incident did not know the car was stolen, she believes.
& # 39; Everyone looked at me like I was crazy – I think they thought I was arguing with my boyfriend, & # 39; said Mrs. McMiken.
As the thief got away with the stolen vehicle, he began to squeak the horn to clear people his path, all before he went the wrong way to run a lap.
Originally from Waiheke Island, McMiken spent the week in Auckland and kept her things in the car.
Together with the vehicle, the thief had taken all the mother's toiletries, makeup, clothing, ErgoBaby carrier bag, portacot and the children's cherished toys.

Mrs. McMiken was stranded in the middle of the street with only her children and a single gumboot – the thief had taken her phone and wallet.
& # 39; Imagine that he had driven away with the children in the car? That would have been worse than hell, & she said.
Mrs. McMiken managed to get a lift to the ferry where she had to beg to be admitted so that she could go back to her husband.
The young mother shared her story to warn others of the dangers, but also appeals to the public to watch her vehicle.
& # 39; Having a car at Waiheke is virtually impossible with children, & # 39; she said.
With only liability insurance, the family did not receive coverage for everything they lost, up to an amount of more than $ 20,000.
Manukau provinces Eastern police inspector Chris Barry confirmed that the incident was being investigated by the police.
The stolen car – a white Toyota Corolla with the GLS745 registration – is still not found.
