Fighting skills helped wrestling star Chris Masters from Los Angeles save his mother from a madman who tried to burn her along with the house. When Masters found out about the woman threatening danger, he, in his own words, entered "hero mode", reports ABC News.
Using a technique called "bear hugs" among wrestlers, the 125-kilogram wrestler pulled out a three-meter tree in front of the house and knocked out the windows that it obscured. After that, Masters, whose real name is Chris Mordetsky, entered the house and took his mother out.
The police who arrived at the scene arrested a man who turned out to be a neighbor of the Mordetskys. According to Masters, the man was clearly not himself. He said that Masters' mother was also his mother. At six o'clock in the morning, he came to her house and barricaded the woman in her bedroom, after which he began to threaten that he would burn the building.
Masters learned of the incident from his uncle and immediately rushed to his parent's house. At first, they, together with their uncle, tried to persuade the abnormal neighbor to open the front door, which he also locked and barricaded with furniture. However, when smoke began to pour from under the door, Masters realized that he could no longer hesitate.
The windows of his mother's room were on the other side of the house. However, a tree growing nearby prevented us from getting out through them. When the wrestler pulled him out, his mother was saved.
In the process of accomplishing the feat, Masters himself received small cuts, which he photographed and posted on his Facebook page.
Besides him, three policemen were injured, one of whom inhaled smoke and was taken to the hospital.
