So yesterday morning a taxi carrying a suicide bomber exploded outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital, and what you see in that footage above is the driver of the taxi, David Perry, miraculously escaping after detonation.
Hero David Perry locked the suspicious passenger inside his cab after realising something was off about him. The passenger had asked to be taken to Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral where a service marking Remembrance Day was being held. However, he asked to alight at the hospital after they found their way to the cathedral blocked by road closures.
Amazingly, David managed to escape with only minor injuries following the blast, and staggered away from the scene while warning others to stand back. Shout out the guy in yellow as well who ran towards the blazing taxi to help. Absolute hero as well.
A friend of David’s told MailOnline:
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.
They couldn’t get there [to the Anglican Cathedral], the roads were blocked off.
The man changed his mind and asked to go to the city centre instead.
But when they were going past the Women’s Hospital he said to pull in there.
It was just before 11. 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.
The good news is that the only person killed in the incident was the terrorist himself. Rubber dinghy rapids bro! The investigation continues…
