Song and his partner BiBi Kim had left their Ford running while they were unloading groceries at their new apartment on Hardware Street.

He was left with serious injuries after he attempted to stop the theft.

“The doctor, who is in the hospital, said, ‘It’s a miracle. You’re very lucky, but unlucky’,” he told 9News.
