Security cameras rolled as an 83-year-old man, Denis O’ Connor, took matters into his own hands during an attempted robbery.
This armed robbery took place just outside of Cork, Ireland at a little betting shop called Bar One Racing. An 83-year-old man named Denis O'Connor was inside the business when three men in hooded sweatshirts barge through the door. And everyone in the business was startled by their abrupt entrance.
Right away, one of the armed men jumped over the desk counter wielding a hammer, and another one ran around the desk to get behind it, holding a hammer as well. What a scary sight!
That is when the security footage catches Denis coming behind the counter to start fighting off one of the robbers. This 83-year-old man has some courage!

Denis and the robber lay their hands on one another and get into a bit of a scuffle, and then Denis chases two of the robbers out the door with a stool.

What an intense moment! And I'm sure everyone in there let out a big sigh of relief when it was over, and they were all safe.
