Cancer Patient Tackles Florida Bank Robber
April 05, 2011
Helen Dunsford, a stage 4 cancer patient, is being hailed as a local hero for tackling a would-be bank robber inside a Bank of America branch on Friday.
The incident began when the female suspect approached the teller window and demanded $10,000 and said she had a gun. The suspect then turned and told bank customers to get onto the ground.
Instead of complying with that order, Dunsford tackled the woman and held her down until deputies with the Broward County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office arrived to take her into custody.
