Liverpool Women’s Hospital Terror Attack and a Hero

A suicide bomber blew up a taxi outside the Liverpool Women’s Hospital in England on Sunday at around 10:59 a.m.. The case is being handled as a terrorist attack. The Taxi driver, David Perry, managed to escape the vehicle, locking the doors behind him so that the perpetrator could not get out. Sunday was “Remembrance Sunday” in England, and a nearby service was the original destination of the taxi fare. Road closures kept the taxi driver from going to the Cathedral where 1,200 veterans and families of the fallen gathered. The terror threat level in the UK has been raised to “substantial,” meaning an attack is highly likely.

David noticed the man had some kind of light attached to his clothing and was messing around with it, it didn’t look right at all. They couldn’t get there, the roads were blocked off.

The man changed his mind and asked to go to the city centre instead. But when they were going past the Women’s Hospital he said to pull in there. It was just before 11. David noticed the man had some kind of light attached to his clothing and was messing around with it, it didn’t look right at all

I don’t know how he’s done it with a split second’s thought but David’s jumped out and locked the car with this guy in the back. As soon as he did, it’s gone off. If this guy got in the hospital God knows what could have happened. David’s the luckiest man in Britain as well as the most heroic.

Taxi driver’s friend to Daily Mail

The Taxi driver, idenitfied as David Perry, became suspicious and as soon as he arrived at the hospital, he bailed out of the taxi, locking the doors behind him. He was still at the car when it exploded, but escaped with minor injuries, only required stitches, and a damaged ear drum. Terrorism experts say the car had extensive fire damage, but little blast damage.

Nick Aldworth, a former senior terrorism investigator in Britain, said the taxi appeared to have sustained “a lot of fire damage with very little blast damage.”

He said that “whatever was in that vehicle was either a low yield or didn’t work properly, or possibly an incendiary. So I think it’s very much open to debate at the moment about what has happened.”

Liverpool Mayor Joanne Anderson praised Mr Perry for his quick thinking.

“The taxi driver, in his heroic efforts, has managed to divert what could have been an absolutely awful disaster at the hospital.”

“It does look as though the taxi driver in question did behave with incredible presence of mind and bravery.”

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson

This taxi driver had exceptional situational awareness. What could have been a complete disaster if the suicide bomber had managed to get into the hospital was thwarted by one man who saw something suspicious.
