Dramatic CCTV footage has emerged of a customer saving a disabled shopkeeper from being attacked with a sword.

A man burst into the shop in Mumbai and started swinging the sword at the shopkeeper, Rajnish Singh Thakur, who narrowly avoids being hit. The customer steps in and grabs the swordsman, wrestling the blade off him. A crowd of people from the street then restrain the assailant while they wait for the police.

Thakur was targeted as he refused to pay a group of extortionists who had been threatening local business owners with arson and violence.

What an actual real life hero.
