It’s the absolute nightmare scenario. Armed men bust through the door. They immediately pounce on the father, beating him savagely. Now the child and mother are surely doomed. A pregnant Florida woman faced those odds recently. But instead of becoming a victim, the woman grabbed the family AR-15 and saved the day.
Had the woman, eight months pregnant and all, not intervened, the situation could have turned dire. The husband, Jeremy King, took a savage beating before his wife came to the rescue.
“I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head,” King said, according to baynews9.com. “I took a severe beating.”

The incident began when two armed men, wearing masks, burst through the door in the evening hours. Reports say they immediately targeted King, demanding cash.
“They came in heavily hooded and masked,” King said, according to baynews9.com. “As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter.
“I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,'” King continued. “And they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.'”
The men then began pistol whipping and kicking King in the head. That’s when his wife looked out the bedroom door, and one of the suspects fired at her, according to baynews9.com. So she grabbed an AR-15 and engaged the threat.
“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said, according to baynews9.com. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its things.”
Deputies found one dead suspect lying in a nearby ditch when they arrived on the scene, according to baynews9.com. The other suspect remains at large. Regardless, the outcome surely would have played out much different for the King family if it weren’t for actions of Mrs. King.
“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it,” King said, according to baynews9.com. “[My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me.”
