Heroic Wheelchair-Bound Man Thwarts Convenience Store Robbery [GRAPHIC VIDEO]

Wheelchair-Bound Man Thwarts Robbery

In Vancouver, Canada, a courageous wheelchair-bound man wrestled a would-be robber to the ground during an attempted robbery at a convenience store. And a security camera caught the brave struggle on tape.

Larry Skopnik, a paraplegic who broke his back 10 years ago in an ATV accident, fearlessly tackles the criminal as he attempts to rob store clerk Cindy Grewal. Despite his handicap, Skopnik puts the man in a headlock and forces him to the ground until onlookers jump in to help.

Watch footage of Skopnik’s heroic act below. (Warning: This video may be too intense for some.)
