AS Roma Frenchmen Philippe Mexes got the phone call that makes your heart stop.
Mexes was at pre-season training camp when news came to him that his car was stolen from his driveway while his two-year-old daughter slept on the back seat.
Apparently Mexes' wife left the little girl in the car while she dashed inside carrying the couple's young son and the car thieves thought the car was theirs for the taking.
Undoubtedly the thieves were just as surprised to find the sleeping stowaway in the back seat and abandoned the car and child unharmed at a piazza close to their house.
Mexes' daughter actually slept through the entire ordeal!
