A man armed with a meat cleaver attacked his wife in broad daylight on the streets of New York City. Firefighters heard the woman’s screams and came to her rescue. The entire ordeal was all caught on a surveillance camera.

FDNY’s Jose Ortiz described the scene, “He pulled

the cleaver out of his waistband and starts hacking at this woman. I rush him, I'm trying to grab the cleaver but he’s swinging.”

The firefighters were able to subdue the 28-year-old man until police arrived and he was arrested. The attacker has been charged with attempted murder among other charges. The wife is listed in critical condition at a local New York area hospital but is expected to survive.
