Though the world can be a pretty messed up place, it would be a whole lot worse if it weren’t for good samaritans. Just ask the two deli owners who may not have survived a firebombing without the help of a frequent customer.

Surveillance video from a Brooklyn deli shows who was described as an angry customer throw a Molotov cocktail into the business. It explodes on a fiberglass divider and showers the counter with fire.

The bodega owner and his son then leap out of the flames to escape the inferno. Meanwhile, outside, the suspect lights a second device but a good samaritan smacks it out of his hand. The owner says the good samaritan is a regular customer of the deli. The suspect was eventually chased down by employees and held until police arrived.
