(KSL) Tory and Maresa Law's little boy, 8-month-old Max, was scheduled for heart surgery Tuesday, but getting him to the hospital was a bigger ordeal than expected.

Tory Law was warming up his wife's car around 5:30 a.m. while getting ready to take Max to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Law went back inside to get a few things, and that's when the couple heard someone outside revving the engine.

"My wife peeked out the front window ... and I think they saw her peeking, and so we hear them accelerate out of the driveway," he said. "I opened the front door and kind of chased them down the street, just trying to get them to stop."

But the thief or thieves didn't stop.
