Trooper Ed Andersson would likely have been beaten to death had concealed-carry permit holder Thomas Yoxall not shot Andersson’s attacker, and the trooper will be forever grateful. According to a recent feature at Azfamily.com, despite having his arm in a sling, Andersson still finds a way to embrace Yoxall each time they meet. In fact, the two have forged a bond.
“And not just [a bond] between me and him,” Andersson said. “But between my family and him, too.”
Andersson credits Yoxall’s quick, decisive action with giving him a future. “I get to see my grandkids grow up, my daughters get married eventually,” he said. “He did a fabulous thing.”
