How Long Before German Officials Wake Up?
Up to six injured after ‘axe-wielding man’ goes on the rampage in Dusseldorf train station as ‘accomplice is arrested by anti-terror police after JUMPING off a bridge to escape’
“There was blood everywhere,” one eyewitness told the German newspaper Bild.
It was reported by eyewitnesses that panicked commuters fled screaming in horror as the attacker, who had another accomplice armed with an axe, according to some reports, slashed anyone he came across.
“We were standing on the track, waiting for the train. The train came and suddenly someone jumped out with an axe and hit the people. I have experienced a lot, but I have never experienced it.” A witness said.
One of those injured is reported to be a 13-year-old, after the axe-man hacked at her upper arm. Police could not confirm how serious victims’ injuries are, but some were seen treated in ambulances at the scene.
Cops were able to grab the man and took him and another person into custody, but cops were still searching for other suspects and investigating if the bloodbath was a terrorist operation.
The first video from inside the station tonight showed pools of blood all over the station concourse floor, The Mirror reported.
