Three Americans, childhood friends, on a train in France took down a terrorist armed with an AK-47. There aren't a lot of details yet, but apparently they heard the distinctive sound of the rifle being loaded. When the guy came out of the toilet, they were already responding.
It wasn't Marines, it was post 9/11 Americans, an Air Force Airman, a National Guardsman, and a civilian. Armed with just their bodies and the will to resist.
Remember. There will be more of this and some of it will be here.
Sadler told The Associated Press that they saw a train employee sprint down the aisle followed by a gunman with an automatic rifle. As he was cocking it to shoot it, Alek just yells, 'Spencer, go!' And Spencer runs down the aisle, Sadler said. "Spencer makes first contact, he tackles the guy, Alek wrestles the gun away from him, and the gunman pulls out a boxcutter and slices Spencer a few times. And the three of us beat him until he was unconscious."
