Karol Sanchez’s Mother
The mother of Karol Sanchez suffered as she desperately tried to hold on to her daughter. In the film, as Karol is pushed into the car, you can see her throw her umbrella down and run past one of the supposed kidnappers. She seems to be breaking away from one of the people who were trying to stop her.
The vehicle pulled a few feet away, and because of the car's bright lights and the grainy quality of the surveillance footage, it's unclear exactly what happened in the next few seconds. The car stopped again and was driven to the sidewalk by Karol's mom.
As the driver headed east on East 156th Street, she stands up and seems to be trying to run after the vehicle. Pix 11 stated not claiming to have been injured and refusing medical treatment.
