Imagine coming home with your wife who is eight month pregnant, and finding an intruder in your bathroom. The man named He Bohai pinned the thief to the floor of the shower cubicle with a military hold after his ‘training just took over’ to protect his wife and unborn child.
That is what one man from Taiwan had to do today. Bohai said that after they had entered the apartment, the attacker “came at me, and there is no way I was letting him reach my wife and unborn child”.
What makes this story so unbelievable is the fact that since the intruder died at the hospital due to lack of oxygen while being in a stranglehold by Bohai, he was arrested as a murderer for defending his family’s lives.
‘Once I had him restrained, I told her to call police and I kept him pinned down.
‘I didn’t want to kill him but there was no way I was letting him go with my wife and our unborn child to protect.’
Police discovered that the man was unconscious by the time they arrived and was declared brain dead at hospital.
His family have consented to turn off his life support machine.
According to the Daily Mail,He was subsequently charged with negligent manslaughter.
After the story was posted online by local media, he was eventually granted a 50,000 Taiwanese dollar ($1630.68) bail, but police have said he will still face trial.
He’s father said the whole family supported his son and added that they were proud of him for protecting his family.
A police spokesman said: ‘A man was killed by another man, it is not up to the police to decide whether he is guilty. He will have to stand trial.’
But the former soldier has received massive support across the country after it was revealed the crook had known exactly whose family he was robbing.
Video footage shows that he had been to the property several times to check out its potential as a target and then had finally broken in when he saw that the man and his wife were away.
But they came back earlier than he expected and the fight took place.
