Hero Veteran who saves a Grandma from Brutal Robbery gets Huge Surprise from Ellen
Kendrick Taylor and his friends were shopping near a Florida Winn-Dixie grocery store back in 2014 when they heard screams coming from the parking lot. Taylor immediately looked and saw a thief knocking over a 76-year-old woman and attempting to steal her purse.
Taylor, a Navy veteran, sprang into action and ran over to help. When the purse-snatcher tried to run away, Taylor gave chase and tackled the thief to the ground and waited for the police to arrive!
Kendrick receive the Medal of Merit from the Orlando Orange County Sheriff’s Office for his good deed, but Ellen DeGeneres also heard of his heroism and invited him onto her show.
In the heartwarming clip below, Ellen presents Kendrick with a few amazing surprises — but the best one of all is when she announces a special guest has been secretly waiting backstage. All Kendrick has to do is turn around… and his reaction is absolutely priceless.
