SA Graduate Tells How Dozens Shot Right in Front of Her in Paris Attack
Cape Town – A South African graduate has described in chilling detail how she lay down and played dead while dozens of people were shot right in front of her when attackers stormed the Paris venue where she was attending a concert on Friday night.
Isobel Bowdery, 22, who graduated from the University of Cape Town last year, was at a sold-out rock concert at the Bataclan hall when three attackers entered and started firing assault rifles into the crowd. At least 89 people were killed there.
In a post on her Facebook page, accompanied by a picture of her bloodied shirt, Bowdery said she initially thought the attack was part of the show, and that she never thought something like that would happen to her.
