1. Paris attacks: Melbourne woman narrowly escapes injury by hiding and ‘pretending’ to be dead
A Melbourne woman has narrowly escaped injury in the Paris terror attacks, that killed 129 people and injured more than 350, by hiding and pretending to be dead.
Melbourne woman Sophie Doran, 30, was with a friend at the Bataclan concert hall, watching a rock concert when attackers opened fire with semi-automatic weapons.
Ms Doran’s friend was shot in the attack as he stood beside her, but he has since been released from hospital.
Ms Doran’s father, Michael Doran, said his daughter cried over the phone when she recounted the event.
“From what she tells me, the carnage as it’s described and the bloodbath seems to be an accurate reflection of what they all saw in there,” he said.
Mr Doran said his daughter told him she and her friend hid under the backs of the chairs and pretended to be dead for about half an hour until police arrived.
“It was a horrible thing, but I’m just pleased my daughter’s alive, my sympathies go out to those people whose daughters and sons and brothers aren’t alive.”
The 19-year-old from Hobart had been living in Tubingen, Germany, and was believed to be holidaying in France.
