TULSA -- The 11-year old who police said was stabbed by her mother is doing 'very well' according to a close family member.

Police arrested Taheerah Ahmad in May after she admitted to stabbing her oldest daughter dozens of times, setting her house on fire and kidnapping her youngest daughter.

Friday, Tulsa Police released body camera footage from the night they responded to her home on East Mohawk Boulevard.

The video shows officers speaking with Ahmad's middle daughter who ran to a family member who lived nearby for help.

"Mama gave us cookies today and then a couple hours later she tied our hands behind our back with duct tape and put a sock in our mouths and she told us to lay down," the girl explains. "She stabbed [my oldest sister] a couple of times and [my sister] told me to run."

Ahmad was found with her youngest daughter in Downtown Tulsa the next day, after an Amber Alert was issued.

A close family member to the girls said they are all doing very well. They said the 11-year old who was stabbed and hit on the head with a pick ax is walking, talking and laughing. Family members called it a miracle.
