[Yishai Montgomery sprung into action after being confronted by a terrorist with a knife/Gofundme]
An online funding page has been created for an Israeli musician who helped stop a terrorist attack from becoming even deadlier.
Yishai Montgomery, 26, was casually playing music along the beach near Jaffa Port in Tel Aviv, Israel, when he suddenly started hearing screaming in the distance, reports The Daily Mail.
That was when he was confronted by a 22-year-old Palestinian man wielding a knife.
The terrorist was apparently set to embark on a stabbing spree of random individuals across area, killing one person and injuring several others. Montgomery was set to become his next victim.
To defend himself, Montgomery quickly decided to smash his acoustic guitar over the terrorist’s head.
“Immediately, I stood up and started to run after him with my guitar, I slammed it on his head. He was stunned and didn’t know what to do with himself,” said Montgomery in an interview with Channel 2 News, according to Jerusalem Online.
The blow managed to temporarily stun the would-be attacker for a few moments, before he eventually regained his senses and ran away.
Montgomery took off after the man, with several other bystanders, until the terrorist was eventually identified and gunned down by Israeli police.
In response to Montgomery’s brave actions, the online community is looking to show their gratitude by replacing his busted up guitar.
A Gofundme page has been set up declaring Montgomery a “Guitar Hero,” and has already raised more than $5,500 dollars towards replacing his instrument.
Plans are also in place to contact American heavy metal band Tool about setting up something special for one of their most heroic fans.
