    Paris ..Police Storm Bataclan Theater to Rescue Hostages.

     

    Paris. I filmed this at 12:20 a.m., Saturday morning while standing  at the cross of Boulevard Richard Lenoir & Boulvard Voltaire approximately 200 meters from the Bataclan Theater while a terrorist attack was in progress and hundreds of concert goers were taken hostage.

     

    I had arrived at the scene approximately at 11:30 p.m. CET and begain filming as soon as I heard what I believed to be the sound of gunshots. Seconds later there were more sounds of gunshots and then a loud explosion all of which can be heard at the beginning of the video.

     

    As soon as the gunshots were fired dozens of ambulances and buses began arriving to transport hostages with the anticipation that there would be mass casualties;

     

    As it stands now about 89 people inside the theater were killed, about 100 remain in critical condition in 10 hospitals across Paris. There are bodies and people in hospital some in coma whose identity cannont be confirmed.

     

    The theater and surrounding area remain under heavy surveillance as police and forensic experts examine the site

     

    Poor quality video..a shame!
