When I think of kidnapping, I think of someone being snatched from a dark alleyway or sketchy train station. This woman, however, was taken by a group of men in plain sight in the middle of the day.
The shocking incident took place on February 17 in Uruapan, Mexico, a city that, according to CNN, has been plagued with brutal crimes since 2006. In that year, an increase in drug cartel activity introduced more gang-related violence to the area.
If there is a lesson to be learned from this security camera footage, it's to never stop your vehicle if it's being approached by a group of strangers. Had the woman sped off, the ordeal may have been avoided.
