A Muslim restaurant worker who was working at one of the cafes targeted in the Paris terror attacks, reportedly saved the lives of two injured women by dragging them to safety.
The worker, who would only give his name as Safer, was behind the bar at Cafe Nostra when shots began to ring out.
“I was at the counter. We heard explosions — really loud bangs,” Safer told BBC reporters. “Everyone started screaming, glass rained down on us. It was awful. There was glass all over the place, hitting us in our faces.”
Safer said he saw the women in obvious danger and waited for a lull in the firing to run outside to pull them to safety.
“I saw two women out on the terrace had been hit. One in the wrist and in the other in the shoulder. They were bleeding really badly,” Safter said. “I picked them up and rushed them downstairs to the basement. I sat with them and tried to stop the bleeding.
As Safer was attempting to stop the bleeding, he could hear the terrifying gunfire above.
“When we came out we saw bodies in the street,” Safer said. “So many were injured.”
During the interview with BBC, Safer wanted to make his views known that these attacks have “nothing to do with religion.”
“Real Muslims are not made for killing people,” Safer said. “These are criminals.”
