An 82-year-old bodybuilder grandma sent a home intruder to the hospital


When a home intruder knocked on an old woman's door planning to rob her, he probably should have tried another home. Willie Murphy, 82, ended up sending a home intruder to the hospital after the bodybuilder fought him off with household objects at her New York home.  

Willie Murphy, who deadlifts 225 pounds, told WHAM that on Thursday night, just as she was getting ready for bed, a man began pounding on her door. 

“He was outside and saying, ‘Please call an ambulance,’ saying, ‘I’m sick, I’m sick,’” Murphy told reporters.
