OP, you are brave! Thank you for helping this poor woman.
If you read The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker he talks about the human brain and what happens when we’re in a terrifying situation. I won’t try to explain it other than to say that your instincts sort of take over and it’s often like you’re being controlled by an outside force. Like your subconscious knows what will save you/another person even if your conscious mind is too terrified to think. He is also the person who developed the Mosaic Threat Assessment which is used by police forces and experts to determine who is likely to commit a violent act. It’s a free tool that anybody can use FYI. Comes in handy if you have a violent person in your life.
