    A 91-year-old West Orange County man rescued his 90-year-old wife Tuesday afternoon after a home invader put a gun to her head.

    The couple were sitting in the living room of their Lake Stanley Road home at about 4:40 p.m. when two robbers broke in, according to a press statement. The first one held the wife at gunpoint. The second entered shortly afterwards, distracting the gunman.

    When the gunman looked away, the elderly man grabbed a .38 caliber revolver hidden beneath a nearby sofa cushion and fired.

    Both suspects fled. The senior citizen and his wife were uninjured.

    No suspects were arrested.

    Good Lord.... I only hope I'm half that alert when I'm 91, heck, if I make it to 91 I'll be stoked.
