Kidnapped Alabama Nursing Student Tells Her Terrifying Story
Brittany Diggs, 25, was lying in the trunk of her own Nissan Altima just before midnight on March 14, hours after being kidnapped outside her apartment in Birmingham's Avondale neighborhood by a man wielding a gun.
After the gunman threw Diggs into the car's trunk, the nursing student, who is reportedly diabetic, said that she had the idea to use her insulin pump's small light to find the latch to open the trunk from the inside, according to the NY Post. "So I got the bright idea to use my insulin pump light".
Police are still searching for the suspect who they say kidnapped the 25-year-old Diggs at gunpoint outside her flat in Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday last week. When Diggs tried to explain that she was just a student and didn't have money, the robber forced her into the trunk while he drove to different ATMs.
That's when he ordered Diggs to get in the trunk.
"He was not right ... there was something going on with him", station owner Yosef Alsabah tells AL.com, noting the suspect asked him for help with the ATM in frustration when it wouldn't give him more than the daily maximum.
Police are still searching for the man, who Diggs says took many of her belongings, including her phone, credit and debit cards, and her vehicle.
"I saw the trunk popped up and a woman jumped out of the trunk and came inside the store".
She then waited for him to get back in the vehicle, but the robber pulled out quicker than she expected.
Confronted with a handgun as she returned home from work, Diggs was first ordered to drive to multiple locations as her abductor attempted to rob others. Her bold breakout - which was recorded on surveillance camera - shows Diggs hitting the floor and storming towards the store's entrance to seek help.
"I try to put it in the back of my head, so I can just, you know, get through the day", a tearful Diggs said. I let her inside a safe place and locked the door and called the police, ' he said. Diggs was so traumatized by the incident though that she doesn't want to auto back, and she hasn't slept in her old apartment since. "That was the scariest thing I've ever had to do", she told NBC News.
Now, friends of Diggs have launched a GoFundMe page to help her raise money to relocate. Brittany jumped with nothing to lose but also nothing to come back. 'This stranger took everything from her'.
