After two men brutally killed a British soldier (in Woolwich), a mother calmly talked to the murderers and distracted them from the fact that they were slowly being surrounded by police.
The 48-year-old jumped off her bus when she saw the soldier’s body lying in the street. She checked his pulse and then tried to talk to the men who hacked him to death. One told her: ‘We want to start a war in London tonight’.
In broad daylight, the two men ran the soldier down with their car, then hopped out and repeatedly stabbed and tried to behead him in front of people walking by.
She said the guys weren’t on drugs. When she questioned one of the murderers, he said “He is a British soldier, he killed people, he killed Muslim people, in Muslim countries.”
The mother said, ‘I wasn’t scared. I thought, rather me than a child.’
The two men were eventually shot and taken into custody.
