SALT LAKE CITY — When he heard the woman scream for help, adrenaline kicked in for Alex Elsmore. The 19-year-old chased after a man who was believed to have just robbed a nearby restaurant at knife point. But if he were put in the same situation again, Elsmore said, he would do things differently.
"It was just not worth it," he said, "completely and utterly not worth it. I almost lost my life trying to stop someone, and he didn't care what happened."
