In a heroic moment that sounds like the final scene of an action film, a British sniper saved a man and his eight-year-old son from certain death at the hands of ISIS after shooting dead the man who was about to execute him.
The father and son, who belonged to the Shia sect whom Isis regard as infidels, were going to be killed because they refused to renounce their faith.

But they were there just in time to prevent the killings.
