    Karl Trenker shot 5 times during robbery, plugs holes with fingers like a boss

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -

    A Lt. Colonel in the U.S. Marines told Local 10's Jeff Weinsier that people need to be careful when posting items on Craigslist.

    Karl Trenker was shot five times Wednesday after meeting with a man who responded to an ad his finacee, Tanya Siaz, had placed on the popular website.

    One of the bullets grazed the back of Trenker's head. Another went through his chest.

    Trenker thought he was meeting with someone who was interested in buying the gold necklace his fiancee had posted on Craigslist.

    "She was going to go and show it to them, but I said, 'No, you don't know who these people are,'" Trenker said.

    On Friday morning, Trenker spoke exclusively to Local 10 from his hospital room at North Broward Medical Center.

    He said he was showing one of the suspects the necklace when the man grabbed it and ran off.

    Trenker said he drove around the area, spotted the suspects and when he approached, was shot.

    "I knew I was shot," he said. "I just didn't know I was shot that many times. I put my fingers in the holes to stop the bleeding and ran back to the truck and told my kids I had been shot, but not to worry."

    "He called me and said, 'Honey, I've been shot,'" Siaz said. "I nearly fainted. He saved my life. That would have been me."

    Trenker credits his military training for saving his life and credits the doctors at North Broward Medical Center.

    He was in surgery most of the day on Thursday. Part of his intestines had to be removed.

    Meanwhile, the suspects, James Flournoy and Jeff Steele were both arrested and charged with attempted murder.

    They are both being held without bond.

    Damn...did he get the necklace back? Badass for sure, but don't know about approaching unarmed and alone. Was he a CHL holder?

    I'm not sure if he qualifies for badass of the month or dumbass of the month. He went ALONE to conduct a sale through craigslist. Then he fucking chased the thieves ALONE. Both of those choices sound pretty retarded to me.

    hindsight is 20/20...

    Whats he supposed to do, bring a posse? He took the most prudent measure, he wouldnt let his wife do it. We can second guess it six ways from sunday but how many times have you decided to accept risk to some degree? Gone out when it is snowing? On new years when all those drunks are on the road? Gone to meet a buddy at a bar you had never been to before? Walked into a convenience store with a shady dude in one of the aisles but you really have to piss and it is the only bathroom in several miles?
    Misjudgements do not take away from badass quotient in most cases.

    Oh come off it, craigslist has been more than proven in the past to be a less than trustworthy medium. If anything it's like a web address for the black market. So yes if i were meeting someone from craigslist to sell something, at the very least I would take a friend and meet in a public place. And I sure in the **** would not drive around and look for the thieves alone without a weapon, that is just plain fucktarded.

    ...and Medals of Honor and VCs are generally awarded because someone fucked up (generally not the recipient admittedly), it doesnt take away from what they did.

    From the video: "Trenker was to meet the suspects in a well-populated plaza, but realized when he got there that it was a quiet apartment complex."
