A brave hero jumped on the truck in Nice to stop attacker, reports say

As a truck driver horrifyingly plowed through a crowd in Nice, France, on Thursday night, one brave man reportedly jumped on the truck to stop it. It was then that police were able to get a good shot at the driver, according to news reports.

Eric Ciotti, a lawmaker representing Nice in the General Assembly of France, told Europe 1 that he saw the man’s courageous act and that the driver tried to shoot him.

“It was at that moment that the police were able to stop the terrorist,” Ciotti said, according to the New York Times.

Police told the Independent that a man actually jumped into the cab and wrestled with the driver. The man reportedly survived.
