In what could be described as a completely unexpected turn of event, an 82-year-old granny recently left many surprised, after she shared the story of how she handled an intruder that tried to break into her home, in Rochester, New York.
According to reports by CNN, the granny, Willie Murphy said she was getting ready to retire for the day when she heard someone pounding at her door, and begging her to help him place a call to an ambulance service.
To be on the safe side, Murphy explained that she placed a call to the police and held back on opening the door for the man. He, however, ran out of patience and broke the door of her house.

Unknown to the individual, Murphy was not just a soft and fragile granny. She is an award-winning body builder who still works out on a daily basis.
Speaking to CNN affiliate WHAM, Murphy said she used a barrage of household items to attack the intruder and prevent him from getting into her apartment. Murphy explained that she started by throwing her table at the burglar.
"I took that table and I went to working on him," she said. "And guess what? The table broke."
Grandma Murphy said she used the legs of the table to keep hitting him.
She did not just stop there. Granny Murphy explained that she raced into her kitchen, picked up a shampoo and squirted it on his face while he struggled to make it back on his feet. Murphy, however, whacked him some more with a broom.
Seeing that he evidently chose the wrong house to rub, the intruder was ready to flee from Murphy’s house.
"He wants to get the heck out of there. And I'm trying to help him get out of the house, but he's too heavy. I can't move him. He's dead weight," she narrated.
Fortunately, the cops arrived in response to the distress call Murphy had made earlier on. See a photo of Murphy and the cops below:
