Nothing could ever prepare Cash Freeman for the scene he walked in on Friday afternoon, but his quick thinking and brave actions in the midst of a horrifying situation have since had people all over the country hailing him a hero.
Cash was at his home in Ada, Oklahoma, when a young girl came running to his door, pleading for help. He quickly followed her to the house next door where he found a scene that left him cold.

A man was holding Cash’s neighbor at knifepoint while he tried to drown her 3-month-old twins.
As Cash later found out, the knife-wielding man was 27-year-old Leland Foster. He had shown up at the home where his estranged wife, Michelle Forrells, was staying with their twins. He then pulled his family into the bathroom and held Michelle at knifepoint while he attempted to drown their babies.
Thankfully, the homeowner’s 12-year-old granddaughter was at the house at the time and she quickly ran for help. That’s when she found Cash, who grabbed his revolver.
