Why this attempted rape went so bad….for the would be rapist.

She was only 18, traveling alone from California back to her home in Utah. 

It’s late and she stops for gas and to use the restroom.  While getting gas, she begins getting heckled by a car load of guys as she walks into the convenience store to use the restroom.

Unfortunately, the restrooms are on the outside. She is somewhat hesitant, but takes the key and ignore the lewd suggestions being made by the disrespectful, low-lifes outside.

When she exists the restroom, she hurries into the store to return the keys. The store Manager hears the heckling and notices the concern of the girl. He also knows the guys are trouble and calls the police. The girl leaves the store, headed for her car, unaware the Manager had called the police.

One of the guys, the most vocal approaches her, making lewd comments. She tells him to leave her alone and starts to run and he runs after her. She realizes he will catch her and turns around, shining a small TigerLight into his face and yelling, “Back off!”. He winces, then laughs and lunges toward her. That is when things got real bad….for the attacker.

He did not see it coming. He did not know what hit him. It was incredibly shocking! The pain was intense, like nothing he had ever felt. He could not see. He could not open his eyes, but worse than all of that, he could not breath!  He was scared! He dropped to the ground and with every once of mental and physical strength he gasped for air, his whole body heaving, convulsing in a desperate attempt to breath in oxygen. 

Over the next several minutes, which seemed like an eternity, he was able to get just enough oxygen to remain conscious, but the convulsive caused him to throw up, violently.

The police arrived. He was still on the ground in terrible pain, still fighting for air.  The young woman had jumped into her car, locked the door and rolled up the windows.  When the police arrived, she stepped out of the car and approached them. The officer asked what she had done to the guy. 

She lifted her hand revealing the small TigerLight attached to her hand. The officer chuckled and said, “Oh, a TigerLight,” motioning to it and smiling as the other officers looked on.

“You are a very lucky lady. This is a really bad guy,” the officer said.

Well, the say luck is when preparation and opportunity meet. I supposed she was prepared and a criminal presented the opportunity, uninvited though it was.

Obviously, this true story could have had a very different ending, a very sad ending.

Make sure your loved ones are prepared with a TigerLight.  Right now, the D.A.D.® 2 is the device you and those you love, should have.
