This is absolutely terrifying. Shocking video footage shows a pregnant woman clinging to her life by hanging on the Bataclan Theater’s window ledge as shots were being fired during the brutal Paris Attacks on Nov. 13. Warning: This clip isn’t easy to watch.
In a moment of sheer terror, a pregnant woman tried to escape the Bataclan Theater during the Nov. 13 Paris Attacks by climbing out a third story window, and it was all caught by a journalist on video. The horrifying footage shows the unidentified woman begging for help as people fled from the concert hall where ISIS terrorists killed more than 80 people. Watch the clip here.
Warning: This video is graphic and terrifying to watch. As dozens flee the back entrance of the Bataclan Theater, the woman can be seen shouting for help while shots can be heard being fired from inside. A journalist captured the scene, and the woman bravely clung to life while dangling from the window’s ledge for at least 2 and a half minutes.
With fellow concertgoers running for their lives during ISIS’ attack, it was understandable that the woman went mostly unnoticed by those in the back alley. However, eventually, she was pulled back inside by someone in the building. The scene around the theater is absolutely devastating, as well, with dead bodies lining the street and others being dragged away, leaving trails of blood.
More than 80 were killed during the Bataclan hostage situation, which took place during the Eagles Of Death Metal concert on Nov. 13. Three of the ISIS terrorists who stormed the building were killed when they detonated their explosives, while the fourth was shot by police before he was able to do so.
This was just one portion of the horrifying six-point attack in Paris on Friday — gunmen also killed pedestrians dining at busy restaurants, and bombs were set off right outside an arena where France was playing Germany in soccer. So far, 129 have been confirmed dead, including one American college student studying abroad, with more than 350 suffering injuries.
