On this double edition of Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Galloway, Ohio, where homeowner Matt Nichols defended himself against two armed intruders. Nichols was awoken by the noise of the break-in, and when one of the intruders pointed a gun at the homeowner, Nichols fired and killed one of the intruders. The second story comes from Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, where Tim Patterson heard a woman scream while working. Patterson went around back to investigate and found a man holding a knife to a woman's throat. When Patterson drew his pistol, the assailant dropped the knife and fled. Originally aired 12/09/2011.
