It was supposed to be a happy occasion for visitors to a restaurant in Mexico when an armed robber entered the scene and started attacking customers.
Humberto Rojas Landa, who works as a clown helping sick children with laughter therapy, didn’t hesitate to help try and stop the robber.
He grabbed a water jug and hit the offender on the head as he tried to attack a woman with her baby. But the robber shot him in the head.
The 51-year-old spent 24 hours fighting for his life before he died.
Humberto, also known as Doctor Cosquillas, or ‘Doctor Tickle’, was shot in the Pueblo restaurant on February 6.
While Humberto lay on the ground the robber escaped on foot with only a single cell phone, as per the Daily Mail citing local media sources.
