Mornings with Kristen Herrmann

Weekdays 6:00am - 9:00am

This story makes me want to head straight to the gym after work.

Willie Murphy, an 82 year-old grandmother from Rochester, New York is an award-winning weightlifter. She goes to the YMCA every day, and she just proved that she is NOT someone you want to mess with.

When a young, drunk man attempted to break into her home, she “did a number” on him. She first beat him with a table, and then jumped on him, and then squirt a bottle of baby shampoo in his face. He was in need of medical attention when police arrived, and Murphy says that she won’t be pressing charges.

Watch the video on Twitter to hear her tell the story. You’ll appreciate her even more.
