Mum was human speed bump to save twins

A 22-year-old mother used herself as a human speed bump under her own car to save her toddler twins.

Mindy Tran emerged from being run over with a crushed knee and a dislocated hip.

Ms Tran had just moved into a new apartment in Lawrence, Massachusetts in the US, and had backed her Honda vehicle into the garage, thought she put it in park and got out of the car, leaving her two-year-old twins in the back seat.

The car started rolling and Ms Tran's first instinct was to try to push it back into the garage to stop it from rolling on to the busy street beyond the garage.

The WCVB website reports that Ms Tran threw herself under the moving car before neighbors ran to help, jumping into the car and putting on the brakes.

Firefighters arrived and stabilized the car lifted the car of Ms Tran.

She has since been in and out of hospitals and had surgeries to fix her injured legs.

She told WCVB she would walk again.

"It was all for my kids. I'm just glad my kids are fine," the brave mum said.
