Graphic Video Shows Concertgoers Escaping Paris Terror Attack

Unrelenting horror.

Heart-stopping video of concertgoers fleeing the terrorist attack at the Bataclan theater in Paris Friday captures the chaos as the massacre unfolds.

In the video, wounded and panicking patrons pour through the exit as shots ring out around 10 p.m. A few lie motionless on the ground. Some hang from ledges and windows above, clinging to safety. Others can be seen dragging bodies through the street as gunfire continues.

Please note the footage, shot by Daniel Psenny of Le Monde, is upsetting and graphic.


Psenny told Le Monde he was home at the time and at first thought a firecracker noise was coming from his TV. He then saw "everyone" running from the theater and immediately thought of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Psenny was later shot in the arm while rescuing victims and had to be hospitalized, Le Monde wrote.

According to reports, at least 89 people have been killed at the concert hall, where the American band Eagles of Death Metal was playing. The shootings took place around the same time as other armed assaults and bombings in and around Paris.
