Durban - AN elderly couple are recovering in ICU after an attack on their Nottingham Road farm over the weekend.
Lynn Twort, 70, and her husband Ken, 76, are lucky to be alive after a would-be robber caught them off guard on Saturday night.
According to police spokesman Captain Lolly Naidoo, Lynn was shot in the chest at close range after she opened her kitchen door to let her dogs out.
Ken, trying to save his wife from further harm, tried to ward off the attacker, but was badly beaten. The attacker eventually fled taking only a cellphone.
This is not the first attack the couple have had to endure.
