Transcript for Police Commissioner: Freeland-Gaither 'Has a Lot of Fight in Her'
And joining us now from Philadelphia, the city's police kmishs, Charles Ramsey. It's good to speak with you today under these circumstances. Can you tell us the latest condition of carlesha. How she's doing this morning. She's back home. We brought her family down to Howard county hospital last night to reunite with her. She was released from the hospital. We brought her back to Philadelphia and she's resting at home right now. We'll complete interviews with her a little later on. But give her time to settle down. Commissioner, what details can you share with us about how she was rescued? Well, first of all, this was a case that really had us very, very concerned. It's very rare -- in fact in my 46 years I have never seen a kidnapping on video. So it really added to the sense of urgency we had to find her as quickly as we could. We had a lot of different leads we followed up on. But what really broke the case is when we were able to put video out through the media. They maintained a surveillance, he exited the car and they took him down at that point in time. Didn't want a hostage situation. So they used good judgment in deciding when to take him. And they waited until he exited the car. At the time we didn't know her condition or anything else. But we didn't to want put her in jeopardy. As you alluded to, commissioner, so many law enforcement agencies working together. The public, the video, all that have coming together. And your department in Philadelphia, you've had good results in using social media and getting video out as quickly as possible. Oh, yeah. We do it all the time. We put stuff out on youtube as fast as we get it. We've had a very, very good success rate. And it really helped us out this case and probably saved this woman's life. Had she remained with him, I don't know the outcome. We shuddered to think what could have happened in the video we were referring to. And she was fighting. And she kicked out the window of the car that she was abducted in. What does that tell you about her fighting spirit? My understanding is, even after she was in the car and bound, she continued to fight and struggle with this guy. So she's got a lot of fight in her, and probably helped keep her alive. It was a joint effort all the way around. It's good to see you under these happy circumstances, commissioner Ramsey, thank you. Thank you very much. And good to know she's home with her family right now. The point, everyone coming together.
