Sleeping beauty sleeps thru car chase

A 6-year-old Thai girl slept through a six-hour car theft and dramatic chase in the backseat of the vehicle, owned by her policeman father.

Police Sergeant, 35, had left his daughter in the back seat of his pickup truck, parked at the police station when it was stolen Tuesday night around 9 pm.

Realizing that he had lost both his truck and his daughter, he sent out a public alert on radio stations describing the stolen vehicle, which was eventually spotted by a taxi driver, at 3 am Wednesday.

Scores of taxis joined in a chase of the stolen vehicle and eventually surrounded it, preventing the 25-year-old thief, from fleeing the scene.

The police found the little girl still sleeping in the back seat, despite the hubbub.
