Nevelyn Akins of Birmingham, Ala., was about to drive her
4-year-old daughter to a nearby restaurant when a man jumped into
her car. He grabbed the little girl around the neck and threatened
to kill her if Akins didn't drive him where he wanted. Cautiously
slipping a .38-cal. revolver from her purse, Akins drove until she
was ordered to stop. When the kidnapper tried to pull the child
into the back seat, Akins fired, hitting him in the arm. She fired
again as the man tried to wrestle the gun from her, and killed him
with a shot to the chest.
