national

A 26-year-old woman attempted to grab two children at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson international airport early Saturday–

And it was all caught on camera.

Surveillance video from the airport’s atrium… Shows Esther Daniels –the woman in the pink hat– walk over and put her hands on a stroller with a child in it.

The child’s mother manages to fend Daniels off.

Daniels then notices one of the other children standing nearby … And she picks him up–

But the father is ready… And wrestles the child back.

You can see an officer comes running over… And goes after Daniels when she runs away.

There’s a struggle, but officers are able to get Daniels on the ground and apprehend her.

The officer said Daniels appeared “to be experiencing mental distress.”

She was taken to a local hospital to be checked out before being transported to the county jail.

Daniels is charged with kidnapping and obstructing an officer.
