Richard White, the man who attacked a TSA agent with a machete at a New Orleans airport, has passed away.
63-year-old White was shot three times by a female police officer after he charged at a TSA agent, Carroll Richel, at Louis Armstrong International Airport. White was also carrying molotov cocktails during the attack, but was not able to detonate them due to the heroism of Lt. Heather Slyve of the Jefferson Parrish sheriff’s department.
White was rushed to the hospital and went into surgery before dying from his wounds on Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, Richel referred to Lt. Slyve as her hero during a press conference:
Officer Slyve is my hero. She saved my life. The man was within inches of whacking me with the machete and she did save my life, and saved probably a lot of others.
We keep those affected in our prayers.
