Robyn Irvine awoke to the sound of a click Saturday night. When she opened her eyes, a stranger's face was peering into hers. Then she felt a hand trying to slip the watch off her wrist.
But Irvine didn't scream or freeze with fear as ordinary people like you or I might. Instead, she grabbed her trusty ax and the man retreated, according to CBS Los Angeles.
As it turns out, the Hemet, Calif., woman is an ax-throwing champion, Fox News reports. She later told police that should couldn't have caught the man, but "I could've thrown" the ax. Irvine added that should could have hit the man in the spine and paralyzed him if she had wanted to.
