Surrounded by blood, bodies and gun-toting
terrorists, a policeman bravely crawls towards
a mother and her children frozen in fear.
This dramatic amateur footage was recorded on Saturday
moments after a gang of armed Islamic terrorists
stormed Westgate Shopping Mall in Kenya’s
Nairobi, and opened fire.
As the gunmen strode around the centre executing
victims one by one, the mother and her children
played dead, knowing it was a matter of time
until it was their turn to die.
But instead of their executioner, their saviour
came crawling flat on the ground as the shouts
of the terrorists are heard echoing around
At first he taps her on the shoulder but she
is too terrified to move. So he slides around
the barrier to persuade her to go with him.
He then spends some time talking to the mother
who appears rooted to the spot, too afraid
to go anywhere.
As the children get up from the ground, one
of them looks directly at the camera in tears.
Finally he manages to convince the mother
to follow him and he leads them off, a child
in his arms and the other in front, bravely
using his own body as a human shield to protect
So far it is believed at least 57 people were
killed in the attack. But what happened next
to the four in this video is as yet unknown.
