GOOD NEWS 'I Love a Challenge': Elderly Woman in Wheelchair Takes Down Mugger
A robber who tried to mug an elderly British woman in a wheelchair probably didn’t realize what she was getting herself into.
That’s because 76-year-old Betty Jeffery used to be a national arm wrestling champ in England.
The disabled woman has done competitive sports for 45 years.
Jeffery told the BBC that she’d been on her way to a funeral in Essex when an unknown woman suddenly stared her down in an alleyway and tried to grab her purse.
“I’ll never forget that face. I just hit it,” she recounted. “I had to stop her.”
Jeffery punched her on the nose.
“I love sports and I love a challenge. And she was a challenge,” she said with a chuckle.
Luckily, two passersby happened to spot the tussle – and also stepped in to help.
