Passengers aboard a high speed railway escaped the grip of death by the bravery of a few good men. Last week on the train to Paris, France, a man by the name Ayoub El-Khazzani was planning to shoot the passengers in the train in an act of terrorism, with the suspected weapon being an AK 47, along with the firearm he carried with him, and a box cutter. Aboard the train were three American men one who served in the U.S. Air Force, the other a National Guard for Oregon, the third a college student. These American passengers had heard the suspect fire upon others and immediately responded by tackling the man to the ground then hog tying him until authorities arrived. No passengers were reported dead, but unfortunately four civilians were injured and two were in critical condition. One of the brave men was severely cut behind the neck by the box cutter while trying to subdue the suspect, the other was a civilian said to be shot in the neck.
