Bryant and Lauren Swenson from Utah, US made the move to Nairobi three years ago to to open up a CrossFit gym, alongside their three children.
On November 30, Bryant and Lauren had been driving along the Old Kijabe Hospital Road, close to Maai Mahiuin when they found themselves in a living nightmare.
Ahead of them were three masked bandits attempting to rob a white van. When the van managed to get away, the crooks turned their attention to Bryant and Lauren’s Toyota Land Cruiser.
howing lightning quick thinking, Bryant put their vehicle in reverse, speeding several feet backwards before changing back into gear.
Despite experiencing the sort of peril which would cause many a good driver to stall, accidental action hero Bryant put his foot on the gas and zoomed away with milliseconds to spare.
