A video has emerged showing the huge explosion outside of a United Kingdom hospital after a hero cab driver locked a bomber in his car and the footage is frightening to watch…
The cab driver’s quick thinking saved the lives of hundreds of people.
Keep scrolling to have a watch for yourselves…
The hero driver, David Perry, was on his way to the Service of Remembrance at Liverpool Cathedral…
Where “military personnel, veterans, and families of the fallen” congregated to show their respect to those who have served and given their lives over the years.
However, Perry soon noticed that his passenger appeared to be acting suspicious and “had some kind of light attached to his clothing.”
As soon as Perry informed the man they wouldn’t make it to the Remembrance Day event because streets were blocked off, the suspected terrorist asked him to park at the nearby Liverpool Women’s Hospital instead, setting off further alarm bells.
After they arrived, Perry noticed that the man was “messing around” with the light on his clothing and that “it didn’t look right at all.”
Just before the clock struck eleven, marking the start of the two-minutes silence, he locked the man inside, just seconds before the blast went off…
And a lot of people have commended his incredible bravery…
A close friend of Perry told the Daily Mail that after finding out he wouldn’t get to the cathedral in time…
“The man changed his mind and asked to go to the city center instead. But when they were going past the Women’s Hospital he said to pull in there. It was just before eleven. David noticed the man had some kind of light attached to his clothing and was messing around with it, it didn’t look right at all.”
“I don’t know how he’s done it with a split second’s thought but David’s jumped out and locked the car with this guy in the back…”
“As soon as he did, it’s gone off. If this guy got in the hospital, God knows what could have happened. David’s the luckiest man in Britain as well as the most heroic.”
Another friend added:
“David suffered cuts and bruises, a perforated eardrum, and needed stitches in his ear. He’ll be sore in the morning but he’s home. I’m just glad no new babies were leaving at the time. For David to have probably been terrified and think so fast and then end up OK – it’s amazing.”
Thanks to Perry, the man in question was the only one killed by the blast.
And now, CCTV footage showing Perry’s cab arriving outside of the hospital has emerged.
It captures the moment the cab exploded into flames.
The footage shows the cab arriving at the hospital car park and within seconds it explodes, shattering the car windows.
As smoke begins to pour out of the car, Perry gets out of the car and appears to warn people to stay away from the car as a man runs over to help.
The car then becomes engulfed in flames with the bomber still in the back.
You can watch the video above.
We wish Perry a speedy recovery! What a hero!
