This is the shocking moment a young mum attempts to save her child from being kidnapped by her father. 


Please note: this video contains distressing images.


Jessica Wilson is seen on video taking her two-year-old from her car at a McDonald's drive-thru, and attempting to pass her to the employee who is reaching out to take her.



But her partner blocks her, and they engage in a tug-of-war for terrified tot. The man grabs the child and drives off.


The footage emerged as the result of a court case between Wilson and the child's father, Levenski Crossty, in Cincinnati, according to The Mirror.


Wilson alleged that Crossty broke into her home and assaulted her, leaving her unconscious. 



She said she then woke up in his car with her four children.


Wilson said Crossty drove around for hours, and continued to beat her until she persuaded him to stop to get food for the children.


At this point, she attempted to rescue the youngest child.



The young mum was left stranded and petrified after the kidnapper made off with all four children.


Crossty's defence team argue he did not kidnap the children, but was protecting them from Wilson, who was drunk.


Crossty has been charged with felonious assault, theft and multiple counts of abduction and kidnapping.
