Some thug took a woman hostage on the steps of a church but a homeless man tried to intervene. The thug had a gun and shot the man.
A homeless man was fatally shot when he attempted to free a woman who was taken hostage by a Brazilian gunman.
The incident which occurred last September shows a gunman, 49 year-old Luiz Antonio da Silva, in front of a São Paulo cathedral. Antonio da Silva had allegedly taken an innocent woman, Elenilza Mariana de Oliveira, hostage from the cathedral when the police stand-off ensued.
The graphic video below shows an unarmed homeless man who was passing by, 61-year-old Erasmo Francisco Rodrigues de Lima. He apparently decided to intervene to help the woman in need, and he tackled Antonio da Silva
The homeless man put up a fight even after being shot but ended up dying. This guy sacrificed his life for a total stranger. I’m sure he is resting happily in heaven now.
