Georgia woman, 74, dies after hitting head while trying to stop teen from stealing 12-pack of beer

A 6-month-old girl has died after she was found at an unlicensed daycare in Nashville, Tennessee, Thursday afternoon.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — A 74-year-old woman has died nearly a month after she fell to the ground trying to stop a teen who was shoplifting from the convenience store where she worked.

It happened at a convenience store along Deans Bridge Road on Jan. 24, WJBF-TV reported.

The Richmond County Coroner’s Office told the TV station that Chong Chon died from a head injury.

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office said that their investigation found Chon tried stopping two females and a 13-year-old boy from stealing a 12-pack of beer from the store.

Investigators told WRDW that Chon stepped in front of the boy and told him to put the beer back. He pushed her to the ground and ran out the front door with the girls, deputies said.

Chon was taken to a nearby hospital where she died on Tuesday, nearly a month after the incident.

Investigators have arrested the 13-year-old and charged him with murder while in the commission of a felony. His identity has not been released because of his age.
