This is the shocking moment a man shot dead a burglar running at his wife, causing him to fall head first into a swimming pool.
CCTV footage of the incident in Pocone, in the central Brazilian state of Mato Grosso, shows the burglar fall into the garden pool after being shot by the man he was trying to rob.
Two men can be seen standing near the pool as a woman parks a bicycle against the garden wall.
The scene quickly turns chaotic as the woman turns and shouts out at her husband, who was said to be in their bedroom, after she noticed an intruder coming out of their house.
A man is then seen bursting out of the house and running up the garden – straight towards the woman who called out.
However, the burglar then collapses into the pool as he passes after it, having been shot and killed by the husband.
The man who fired the fatal shot was not seen in the clip and was not named in reports of the incident.
