An 85-year-old Leesburg, Fla., man armed with a revolver
came to the rescue of his daughter-in-law and two grandchildren when
he chased off three home invaders. Betty Ann Ferguson had been
awakened about 5:45 a.m. by the sounds of someone breaking into her
home. When she discovered her phone line had been cut, she used a
cell phone to call her husband who was at work. The call was cut
short when three men burst into the home and Ferguson hid in a back
bathroom with her children. When the men broke through the bathroom
door and demanded money, Ferguson gave them about $300 in cash. As
the robbers discussed whether or not to kill her, Ferguson's
father-in-law, alerted by his son, drove up in a golf cart and
exchanged fire with the men as they fled the scene.
