In the wake of the horrific terrorist attack in the French city of Nice, different stories of heroic acts are starting to emerge, including the man who saved his pregnant wife and is now considered the Nice attack hero.
For the couple Timothy Fourner and his wife, it was supposed to be a fun break from their busy city life in Paris when they visit the city of Nice. But during the night of the Bastille Day, where thousands of French and tourist were enjoying the firework display, a horror was about to happen.
The 27-year-old tobacconist from Paris pushed his wife away from the rushing lorry, which caused his instantaneous death, the Mirror reported. Timothy was one of the 84 individuals who died from the attack carried out by the 31-year-old Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel. His seven-month pregnant wife, whose identity remained unknown, survived the deadly attack.
Timothy’s story is only one of the stories that hit the internet days after the deadly attack in the quite city of Nice. It was the second terrorist attack in France in this year.
Another story of bravery amid the same horrific incident was the story of an unidentified man who wrestled with the suspect of the Nice attack. According to reports, the man was able to stop the suspect from causing further damage as he drove his lorry along a crowded promenade filled with people from all over France and some tourists.
In a previous report from the Morning News USA, it was revealed that the man helped local authorities in neutralizing the suspect quicker and prevented the man to cause more damage.
Meanwhile, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve called for unity as France is recovering from the damages caused by the terrorist attack, the Guardian reported. Apart from the 84 casualties, at least 200 individuals, both French nationals and foreign tourists, were reported injured in the attack.
