Both kids were uninjured after the harrowing incident in Middletown, Ohio, on Thursday.
Police later nabbed the alleged would-be thief, named by police as heroin addict Dalvir Singh, 24.
Nita Coburn, 69, was dropping her daughter off at the hospital when Singh jumped into the driver’s seat and took off with her great grandchildren Chance and Skylar, in the back seat.
Police Maj Scott Reeve said: “The little boy opened the door to escape and the little girl started to jump out also but the man grabbed the hoodie of the little girl not allowing her to leave.
“As she tried to get away her little brother grabbed hold of her and pulled her away from the kidnapper and they both tumbled out of the vehicle as it was moving.”
Mrs Coburn told WKRC-TV she ran to the driver’s side and tried to get inside to stop the thief.
She added: “All of a sudden, he just floored it. I ate blacktop.
