Liquor Store Clerk Loretta Banister, Convinced Not To Quit, Acts To Save Co-Worker's Life During Botched Robbery

If George Bailey had never been born, all the people on that transport would have died. And if Loretta Banister hadn't stayed on for a final shift at work, her co-worker might have faced a similar fate.

Banister was planning on quitting her job at Red Carpet Liquors in Jeffersonville, Ind., on Saturday, but the owner -- her sister -- persuaded her to stay on for a final shift that night. That was lucky for her fellow clerk, Patel Kamleshkumar, after he was shot three times by an armed robber at the store, reports WAVE, the local NBC affiliate.
