Our prayers are going out to France on July 14, after at least 84 people including kids were killed and over 200 more injured when a truck crashed through a crowd enjoying Bastille Day fireworks. See photos and video of the ghastly aftermath of the terror attack, here.
More tragedy and heartbreak for France, and on their Independence Day, no less. While thousands of joyful people were gathered on Boulevard des Anglais to celebrate and watch fireworks, a man in a semi truck of “lorry,” drove into the crowd for two kilometers, eventually stopping to fire into the crush of people trying to get away.
Though details are still emerging, a massive amount of photos and video have been shared on social media, giving some insight about what happened on July 14. Some photos show a white truck littered with bullet-holes from when police fought back against the alleged terrorist. Other photos show first responders rushing to help while others show families sobbing together.
The videos are much more upsetting. They show people running for their lives moments after the attack stared, while another shockingly shows miles of dead bodies littering the promenade while police swarm the area to help anyone who may still be alive.

The death toll in the horrifying attack is already up to 84, with 202 injured (52 of them critically.) Over 10 children have lost their lives. Police have supposedly killed the gunman in the truck, but it’s unclear if he had been working with anyone else. The most devastating part of the attack was that children were killed alongside everyone else, indiscriminately. Click through the gallery to see the stunning aftermath.
