A woman holds an escaped prisoner at gunpoint while waiting for police. On today's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards tells the story of a Maryville, Tennessee, mother by the name of Carrie Ryan who kept her daughter's new "friend" from running once she discovered he was a criminal. After obtaining permission from the police, she kept 19-year-old Brian Keith Rummage in her home with her legally owned firearm. She never actually pointed the gun at Rummage, just at the floor, warning him that he would be shot if he ran. He was arrested without incident.
