Her Life-Saving Invention Looked Like A Body Bag, But It's Actually The Exact Opposite

If you've ever been stuck outside (or heck, inside) on a bitterly cold day, you've probably been grateful for your sources of warmth: your house, your car, your coat, whatever it may be keeping you toasty warm. But what if you didn't have any of those things? I mean any of them. Where would go? What would you do?Now that you've put yourself in those shoes, let's get started.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
