Two women managed to subdue a man who stabbed his own father using nothing more than a club and a tennis racket.

The women came across two men fighting on an interstate in Tennessee.  That's when one man stabbed the other.

The women pulled over, got out out of their cars, and managed to convince the attacker to get on the ground.

"I was begging, threatening him to get on the ground. Life matters, so you see something like this and you react," the one woman explained.  "We just wanted to help deescalate the situation, that's all."

In a strange twist of faith - the two women pulled over separately, but it turns out they actually knew each other.
