I suppose the security company providing the guard couldn’t find anyone younger and more fit to do the job. On the bright side, at least the guard scared away the robber so he couldn’t hurt any more bank patrons.
If I were the robber, I would have turned around and grabbed a few more bags of cash while the guard caught his breath.
This took place in Hungary, for anyone that is wondering. And the privacy security guard situation is similar here in Pakistan. Police is too pathetic to control crime, so many businesses hire private security guards. However, the salary isn’t good enough to attract people who may actually do a good job as a guard so older/unfit/fat people take the positions and are routinely taken advantage of.
