The French hero just released from a hospital after he was shot trying to subdue a gunman on a train, talked to Le Figaro about the experience and the American who helped save his life.
Mark Moogalian was the first to become suspicious of the gunman August 21 on a train from Amsterdam to Paris. He spotted a rifle carried by them man emerging from the restroom. After he grabbed the gun and ran, he was shot by an additional handgun carried by the attacker.
Moogalian, a 51-year-old French-American professor, living in Paris, recalled the man who saved his life: USAF Airman First Class Spencer Stone.
The 23-year-old California native trained in emergency rescue, placed his hands on the man’s neck wound that was spilling blood.
“You’ve saved lots of lives. When all this is over, we’ll go have a beer together.”
Moogalian also will be awarded France’s highest honor for his bravery.
