Mom Manages to Fight Off Home Invaders While Holding Toddler (VIDEO)

OMG 11

These home invaders picked the wrong mom to mess with. Kayla Walker, 19, of Georgia, was reportedly home with her 10-month-old son when she heard a noise at her back door. She went to investigate and says she saw a man opening her back door. As he tried to get in, she immediately began pushing him back out. But then she says another man showed up, and the two of them pushed their way into the house, knocking Kayla to the ground. Little did they know how much they'd regret that.

Kayla says that as the intruders called her a "white bitch," she head-butted one, grabbed him by the testicles and the throat, and began choking him. She choked him until she thought he'd passed out. But apparently he didn't, and when she let go of his throat, he began to fight her again.

Big mistake.

At this point, Kayla says she was able to grab a hammer and knock the man on the head several times. She then ran into a room and grabbed her young son.

And she wasn't done yet -- she says she ran into another room and grabbed a gun and pointed it at the intruders. She claims one of them said, "This is my house. I'm here to stay," at which point she said, "Not at this residence." And then she pulled the gun's trigger.

However, the gun was empty. But the clicking noise was enough to make the intruders run. They left a trail of blood behind them.

Kayla was left with scratches and bruises, but no severe injuries.

Wow. This is pretty incredible. Kayla doesn't say whether she ever took self-defense courses, but she really seems like she knows how to handle herself. Note here that it wasn't the gun that saved her, as it was empty. It was her own strength and determination.

Women would do well to take self-defense, boxing, kick-boxing, karate, etc.

And it is a good thing the men weren't armed. Kayla told WALB:

[Women] just need to know -- don't give up, fight back to the fullest no matter what.

And definitely don't mess with mama bear!, Albany News, Weather, Sports

Have you ever fought off an attacker?

I glad everything turned out okay in the end and that she kicked the intruders asses!(: I hope when her son grows up he learns about how bad ass his mama is lol.

Of course the gun helped save her. The intruders didn't leave until she pointed the gun in their face and pulled the trigger. It may have not been loaded but I don't see where you come to the conclusion that the gun had nothing to do with saving her.

this lady is freakin awesome!

Lol. Yes, the gun saved her. Accept it.

Bruickson - totally agree. It was the gun that saved her. The first click proved that she was willing to shoot them. They didn't know if every round was blank, and they didn't want to play russian roulette waiting for her to pull the trigger again.


And this is why guns should never be banned. Everyone knows that banning them won't stop bad guys from getting their hands on them, anyway. It's good people that need guns to [try to] protect themselves from the bad guys.

Kudos to her for protecting herself and her son . Hopefully the robbers learned their lesson never mess with mama bear or she will take you out.

Way to go mom! I didn't have to fight someone out of my apartment, but I did have someone try to break in when I was alone with a 2 yr old and pregnant. Even the growling of my big dog didn't make him stop trying to get in. But the sound of the shot gun on my side of the door sure made him run, he didn't know it wasn't loaded.

The article doesnt match with the video. The article says she hit him in the head with the hammer and she said she hit him in the ribs. Js, letting whoever know that theres a typo.

I keep my guns loaded. They are in my closets. I also keep a gold club and knife where I can get to them. My husband was the victim of a home invasion 7 years ago and we live in the same small town, on the same property his dad owns, where it happened, he has had threats made against st his life because he killed one of the men who broke in. Now he works out of town and I live out here in the country alone with our two children. I won't take chances. This mom did the right thing. Good on her for standing her ground.
