As a terrified pregnant woman hung from a window during the Nov. 13 attack on Paris‘ Bataclan theater, she was pulled to safety by a modern day hero. The man, who is known only as Sebastian, left his hiding place during the horrendous attack to bravely save her life, while killers awaited behind the doors.
An unnamed pregnant woman, tried to flee the Paris carnage and resorted to escaping the Bataclan theater via window. It’s unclear if she knew just how high up it was, as helpless onlookers captured the whole ordeal. She hung from a window ledge high above the ground, pleading for help. At one point in the video you hear her speak out in French, “Please, I’m pregnant.” Then after what seemed like a lifetime, someone comes to her rescue and pops their head out of the window and pulls the woman inside. That “someone” was a man known only as Sebastian, according to the La Province.
“She was begging people down below if they would catch her if she jumped. But it was chaos down there. We were 15 meters above the ground. I held on for five minutes and then the pregnant woman, who was exhausted, begged me to help her get back inside. That’s what I did. I don’t know where she went afterwards, but I went back to my old hiding place which wasn’t great. Five minutes later I felt the barrel of a Kalashnikov against my leg and a terrorist yelling: ‘Get down from there… Lie on the ground.'”
He told the outlet that he was in fact connected with the woman he saved, after her loved ones sent out an announcement via Twitter, asking for the man whom saved her, to come forward. She and her family wanted to thank him for his selfless act that saved her life. After the message was widely shared, Sebastian’s brother spotted it. He then connected the two together. As of right now, the woman wants to remain anonymous, because she is still recuperating from the horrific ordeal. Stories like these are what everyone needs to hold on to during difficult times. Sebastian is a wonderful person and an amazing role model to others.
Our thoughts remain with France during this incredibly difficult time.
