A McDonald’s customer saved the day when he stepped in to rescue a worker threatened by a man with a knife. Fortunately, the situation ended well and the worker would have escaped without any serious injuries.
The incident took place at a McDonald’s in Stockport, England, reports the US Sun. Josh Ramm was outside the restaurant when he saw the restaurant workers running out of the building.

“The man said he wanted to kill her because he was not getting any help,” Ramm told The Sun. “It was a very intense situation but I just tried to connect with him. The police arrived after a few minutes, but they were happy to let me continue talking to them.
Fortunately, Ramm does not only practice judo, but he also wore a protective vest at the time, as he also works as a security guard.
