A 20-year-old man dies saving great-great-grandmother. She got punched and stabbed as well on the way to buy takeaway food.
A shocking report came to our view. It’s of an 82-year-old woman named Betty Walsh. She’s from Brentford, London, UK. At first, she didn’t even know she got stabbed by a knife, until someone came forward for help.
The person who intervened to help was a 20-year-old man named Ali Abucar Ali. He came to help Betty, unfortunately he did not survive.
Betty underwent a kidney operation at the St. Mary’s Hospital. According to the Daily Mirror she’s out of the “critical” list.
Betty has lived alone for 30 years after her husband passed away. She has three sons, three daughters, 10 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and a great-great-granddaughter.
Betty’s daughter says Ali is a hero
Betty’s daughter Bridget has given some updates on her mother’s condition and also hails Ali as a hero.
She said her mother has lived in Brentford for 60 years and everyone knew her. She is a lovely person who loves to walk daily and is a strong woman.
Her mother often goes out shopping and is not a frail person. Rather, she’s a football-mad and Brentford FC-mad fan.
Bridget said after her father passed away, her mom raised the kids all by herself. She was the rock of the family. She worked in four pubs and worked very hard to raise the kids.
This will definitely shake her a lot.
She didn’t realize she was stabbed, let alone punched. Till he came to help her.
Ali, who gave his life to save a stranger
She said Ali went over and asked what’s the commotion about? He tried to save Betty by challenging the attacker. Sadly what happened next, is a tragedy.
Ali sacrificed his life saving Betty.
