Woman, 82, beats bur­glar

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

AN IN­TRUDER didn’t count on an 82-year-old woman be­ing an award-win­ning body­builder with nerves of steel.

Wil­lie Mur­phy was get­ting ready for bed at her New York home when a man pounded on the door and said he needed an am­bu­lance. She called po­lice be­fore the man broke in.

She hit him with a ta­ble and was beat­ing him with a broom when po­lice ar­rived.

She won the World Nat­u­ral Pow­er­lift­ing Fed­er­a­tion Lifter of the Year award in 2014.
