A group of Good Samaritans stepped in to save a woman who was being attacked by her husband in an Oklahoma parking lot, and the entire incident was captured on cellphone video.
In the video, the woman is heard screaming out as her husband beats her with a large flashlight. The women asks a group of men passing by to call police, and that's when they intervene.
