Surveillance video captured the moment a young girl jumped out of the back seat of her father's moving SUV to get away from a carjacker.

Police say Mark Beasanski was pumping gas in Aurora, Illinois early Friday morning, when a man jumped into the SUV.

Beasanski's 11-year-old daughter Kayla was in the back seat.

She jumped out as the vehicle pulled away.

Luckily, she was not hurt.

Police caught up with the 20-year-old suspect about an hour later.

Tyrelle Pulley has been charged with aggravated vehicular hijacking, aggravated unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle and fleeing and eluding police.
