A lot of us like to imagine what we would do if someone broke into our home. Would we be able to jump into action despite the fear? What if our kids or spouse are in the house... How far can we go to protect them?
Asif Ali and his wife Charlotte were having a seemingly calm night in late September when the unthinkable happened. Asif heard his dogs barking and when he checked to see what the commotion was about he saw a masked man entering his home.
In the video we see Asif jump into action without a moment's hesitation. Ali lunges at the man and starts throwing blows at the intruder.
All of a sudden a second man enters the house after hearing the commotion, he attempts to restrain Ali however Asif now starts defending his home against the second attacker. Forcing both men to eventually flee.
A third man enters the house with a weapon, to which Ali responds by running to the kitchen to get his own. Seeing this the 3 men decide to flee the house just as Ali's wife Charlotte was coming down the stairs, on the phone with who we can only assume is the authorities.
According to a statement Ali gave on Good Morning Britain the only thought running through his head at the time of the invasion was the safety of his wife. He knew that he could not let even one of the men get past to him to his wife. This need to protect his spouse someone how amazing enabled him to fend off these criminals.
Check out the video to see Asif's courageous actions against these would-be invaders.
