FIVE children are being hailed as heroes after confronting their own father who shot at their mother in the family home.
The shocking attack was revealed in a 60-minutes interview, with the five siblings re-living the horrifying moment their mothers crazed ex-partner Daryl Fields came storming into the families Queensland home armed with a gun in April last year.
The three brothers and two sisters revealed how they screamed ‘don’t shoot, don’t shoot Daddy’ before watching their mother fall to the ground unconscious.

It is then, the little heroes elbowed, choked and punched Fields, grabbed his gun and pinned him down to stop him from firing a third time, before phoning triple-0.
Fields was arrested and charged with attempted murder, along with a string of other charges including breach of domestic violence order and unlawful possession of a firearm.
He pleaded guilty to four charges and is awaiting sentencing.
