Praise for Trol­ley Man

The Sunday Times - - BOURKE STREET BLOODSHED -

THE have-a-go-hero who tried to stop a ter­ror­ist with a shop­ping trol­ley says “it was a spur-of-the-mo­ment thing”.

Michael Rogers wielded only the trol­ley, pic­tured, as he tried to help po­lice stop the knife-wield­ing ter­ror­ist.

“I have seen the trol­ley to the side and I picked it up and I ran and threw the trol­ley straight at him and got him but didn’t get him down. And I did that mo­tion a few times and it just was not get­ting him down,” he told Seven News.

“It was a spur-of-the­mo­ment thing be­cause two po­lice of­fi­cers ar­rived at the time, and the guy was out of con­trol. So I just went into ac­tion mode, threw the trol­ley and tried to swipe him out.”
