Man in Wheelchair Takes Down Robber
This (completely authentic) security cam footage has been spiking in Youtube views this week, with its startling capture of a man in a wheelchair taking down a convenience store arm using only the sheer strength of his arms. He held the thief long enough for bystanders to call the cops and have the man arrested. Simply amazing.
Although his courageous act has started to grab international headlines, local hero Larry Skopnick has shrugged off the praise nonchalantly. "There are only four things I can't do in life, and that's walk, run, jump and kick. Everything else, I'm totally able to do, and helping other people is one of them," he said in an interview with AOL.
