If you work at a convenience store, you must be okay with the fact that you are going to be robbed at some point, right?

It’s probably safe to assume the clerk at this Oregon convenience store made peace with that fact, however, he also made sure he was prepared.

Surveillance video shows a man casing the store. He then enters and pulls out a hatchet as he approaches the counter. Without hesitating, the clerk then pulls a gun from his waistband.

The suspect gives up without hesitation as the clerk calls the police. Facing desperation, the suspect eventually makes a run for it.

Summertime means fun by the pool. However, pools can be dangerous to children and those that can’t swim.

Surveillance video from an Atlanta apartment complex caught the moment a 3-year old jumps into the pool in a circular float and flips over, trapping her upside down beneath the water.

Fortunately, her older sister was watching and jumped into the pool to save her. Body cam footage shows the moment a police officer arrived and resuscitated the young child.
