 What is this world coming to? 

A Denver couple had their lives changed forever when they tried to save a child they found locked in a hot car.  Alan Mason and Shannon Dominguez came across the young boy in a car with all four windows rolled up in the direct sun.  Dominguez reacted quickly and called the cops.

That's when the boy's mother came out and decided to run Mason and Dominguez down with her car.  Even worse, Dominguez is now confined to a wheelchair and doctors say she may never walk the same again.

The boy's mother, Kristina Riddell is facing charges of hit-and-run, assault and child abuse.

What would you do?  Would you call the cops? 

Sounds to me like Riddell reacted poorly to the situation.  Some calm heads may have solved the issue in a better way.
