A widow recently found herself having to pick between her fight or flight response after an intruder kicked in her door. Needless to say, she hunkered down in the bedroom with her trusty firearm and waited for police to arrive, and lucky for everyone who gets the chance to listen, the entire thing was recorded in her call to 911 dispatch.
A report out of Mad World News states that 47-year-old Cynthia reached for her .38 when she heard someone trying to gain entry into her home. Having been taught by her husband exactly how to work the gun, she didn’t have a single worry.
Unfortunately for the man breaking into her house, Michael Lewis, he didn’t know this and was intent on making his way inside with a weeding tool. Once inside however, he found himself on the receiving end of incoming lead.
According to AZCentral, the transcript of the 911 call is as follows:
“They’ve tried my front door, my front door, and now they’re trying to break in my back gate…,” Cynthia tells the 911 operator at one point. “I have a gun in my hands. I’m terrified.”
Later, “Somebody is on my back porch.” And then, “Please help me, please!” as the operator assures her that help is on the way.
“They’re coming out as fast as they can,” the operator says. “Have you heard any voices?”
Cynthia: “Hurry, hurry! They’re coming in right now, please, please, please!
As it turns out, the police weren’t coming quickly enough. Lewis broke into the bathroom and started attacking Cynthia. So she shot him.
Lewis: “Ow! (Expletive.) What was that? What was that? What was that? (Expletive) did you do?”
Her answer was classic. “Did you think you could beat me half to death?”
Lewis: “I’m sorry. I’m sorry…”
Cynthia: “You bet you’re sorry you nasty thing.”
