On this episode of Crime Beat, crime reporter Nancy Hixt takes you through the mind-blowing twists and turns in Randy Safronovich’s life.

Safronovich jokes that he must have nine lives.

The Sylvan Lake businessman was the victim of a home invasion robbery in June 2013.

The offender demanded money from Safronovich, then put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. By some miracle, the gun misfired and Safronovich survived.

It was a life-changing moment, but shockingly, not the first time Safronovich managed to evade death.

“I guess I will write a book called: ‘Dodged a bullet twice now,'” Safronovich told Global News.

Find out why the FBI was consulted for his case, in a real-life story that plays out more like a Hollywood film, in episode two of “Crime Beat.”
