Passengers took selfies after attack
PASSENGERS CAUGHT up in the Parsons Green terror attack were seen “taking selfies” as commuters fled amid the “chaos”, it has been claimed.
Witness Ryan Barnett said several people were also taking photographs following the explosion at the south-west London station during the morning rush-hour. But he said he was shocked to see some pausing for selfies in the stampede.
The 25-year-old, who works in politics and had been travelling to his office, said: “Someone said there had been an explosion, there was white stuff, someone said there was a lot of wires, one girl outside the station had her leg pretty badly cut up.
“People were saying there was one man who was singed down the side of his body.”
Describing the moments after the blast, Mr Barnett said: “I was sitting there, headphones in, at Parsons Green, the doors open fine, I’m not really paying attention and all of a sudden hundreds of people run past me screaming a mixture of ‘stampede’, ‘attack’, ‘terrorist’, ‘explosion’, ‘get off the train’, ‘everyone run’.”
