In the midst of all the chaos happening in Paris, there is one hero.
A man by the name of Lassana Bathily saved 15 people from getting killed during the Paris market raid, in which 4 people’s lives were lost. Buzzfeed reports:
As panic ensued, up to 15 customers in the store hurried down to the store basement, when Bathily had an idea.
“When they ran down, I opened the door [to the freezer],” he told France’s BMFTV.
He quickly shut off the freezer and switched off its light. As he closed the door to shelter the customers inside, he told them “Stay calm here, I’m going out.”
Eventually, authorities came to the market and shot the Islamist gunman. The hostages praised Bathily for saving them.
