With the help of her insulin pump, she was able to find the lever, jump out and save her life!

Gas station surveillance cameras recorded 25-year-old nursing student Brittany Diggs jumping out of the trunk of a moving Nissan Altima and running to safety last Tuesday.

A 25-year-old nursing student is speaking out after she escaped her kidnapper by jumping out of the trunk of her own moving vehicle - a plan she concocted after remembering a video she had seen on Facebook. Shelton says he demanded money, and when she told him she didn't have any, he forced her into the back of her auto.

In an interview with the Today show, Diggs recounted her harrowing experience, as well as her clever escape from the moving vehicle.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Janise Robinson, a friend of Diggs, to help her start afresh. "I'm going to drown here and no one's going to know I'm in this trunk", she recalled. "Give me your money,"' she said.

While the man was in a gas station attempting to use her card, Diggs came up with the idea to use the light on her insulin pump to light the latch that will open the trunk from the inside. "I just got the bright idea to use my insulin pump light, which is not a bright light, but it was bright enough to see".

"I'm just sitting there thinking, and I'm like, I might have a trunk latch".

The courageous nursing student, 25, was forced to drive the gunman around town in search of an ATM so she could withdraw cash.

The developments come as an independent think tank warned today that up to 15 new bills could be needed to deliver Brexit. Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron accused Mrs May of rushing into negotiations "without a plan, and without a clue".

'I'm holding the latch like this, waiting for him to get back in the vehicle.

"He gets in, he's yelling, he's pulling out pretty fast, so I'm, like, 'Oh, shoot, let me hurry up and get out of here, '" she said. He then forced her to look in the car's trunk, which had nothing in it, then made her get inside.

Gas station owner Yosef Al Sabah witnessed the dramatic escape.

Once she told Alsabah what was going on, he locked the door and called 911.

He says if the card failed again that he would killer her.

Diggs told "Today" that she is moving from her apartment because the suspect took not only her wallet and phone, but also her keys.

That's when a panicked Diggs chose to make her move.

"I try to put it in the back of my head so I can just get through the day, but that was the scariest thing that I've had to do", she said.
