US Airman Spencer Stone, who foiled a terrorist attack on a Paris bound train, said he acted on instinct. He claims he had woken up from a deep sleep and the first thing he saw was the gunman and immediately moved towards him and successfully restrained him.
He along with his two friends Alex Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler as well as Chris Norman successfully foiled the attack and kept the attacker restrained. All 4 of these brave individuals have been chosen for the Legion d’Honneur from the French president who is a medal of honor in France for acts of bravery or achievement. It is France’s highest honor, and the awards will be presented by Francoise Hollande on a later date.
Meanwhile, the training staff have been accused of neglecting the passengers and not helping them. According to statements, the staff locked themselves as soon as they saw the terrorist and they have been brought up for questioning.
