DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A Volusia County couple survived a terrifying ambush at an ATM.

They told police they were held at gunpoint at 1 a.m. Wednesday and robbed by two men at a Bank of America on International Speedway Boulevard in Daytona Beach.

Police have some clear pictures of the thieves from surveillance cameras.

Marjorie Burns said a masked gunman put his gun to her head and demanded that she give up her cash. She said she thought she was going to die that night.

"Give me the money, I want the money, I'm going to shoot you, and then he loaded his gun, I heard him cock it behind my head," she recalled him saying.

Burns and her boyfriend, Lenard Wilson, stopped at this bank and said Wilson was waiting in the car while Burns was at the ATM when they said the suspects came out of nowhere.

While the robbery was taking place, all the couple could think of, were their young kids.

"I said, 'Dude with all you do, remember I have two kids at home, I have my two boys. Take what you want, but I'm going home to my boys,'" Wilson said.

"I didn't know if I was going to make it home to our boys or what," Burns said.

They gave the robbers $400.

"Once the two men got the money, they ran off into Tuscawilla Park.

The victims got into their car, flagged down a passing cop and reported what happened.

The couple said it is grateful they survived the horrible ordeal and their family is still together.

"God was definitely on our side," Burns said.
