Liquor store clerk survives robbery with his cell phone and a firearm. On today's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards tells the story of 67-year-old Joseph Wescott, a Georgia liquor store clerk who had received both the phone and gun from his son, a police officer. When Wescott was attacked in his store by a robbery suspect, the cell phone in his shirt pocket stopped a knife to the heart and the legally owned gun under the counter ended the attack all together.
