The horrifying attack in London was captured on cellphone and surveillance cameras. The videos available are SHOCKING.
Horrifying footage shows the moment a woman plunged into the River Thames as a car ploughs onto the pavement in a terror attack in the heart of London.
Incredibly she was rescued alive from the river following the atrocity, which saw three members of the public killed on the bridge before the driver murdered a police officer in a knife attack.
The unarmed officer who died has been named by Scotland Yard as 48-year-old father Keith Palmer.
The attacker was shot dead by officers outside the Houses of Parliament.
It is not known whether the woman fell or jumped, but initial reports from the scene suggested she had leaped into the water to escape the 4×4 which killed three people before crashing into railings outside Big Ben.
The car is seen speeding along Westminster Bridge at 2.40pm. Police have said around 40 people were injured before the car came to a halt.
The seriously injured include two French pupils, thought to be 15 or 16 years old, as well as tourists from South Korea and Romania.
A third pupil, from St Joseph High School in the Brittany seaside town of Concarneau, was treated at the scene after being hit by the same car…
…In another video taken moments after the attack, casualties are shown being treated by passers-by on the landmark bridge, which is a popular spot for tourists.
The footage shows a woman lying in the road beneath a bus. She died as a result of her injuries, it has been confirmed.
Another victim, a man, is seen being treated with what looks like a serious head injury by a woman, blood pouring from his forehead.
The woman who took the footage is heard asking: ‘Do you know what happened?’
A passer-by responded: ‘One car’, but did not elaborate. Debris from the vehicle, a Hyundai 4×4, can be seen in the road and on the pavement approaching the Houses of Parliament.
As the woman walks toward the Palace of Westminster, four people are seen lying on the pavement surrounded by members of the public giving them first aid. Sirens are heard in the distance as emergency services scrambled to the scene.
The car mounted the pavement close to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. After crashing the man, brandishing an eight inch kitchen knife, jumped out and ran to Parliament Square as terrified members of the public ran for their lives.
After attacking PC Palmer, the terrorist was shot at least two times in the chest…
…Several of those injured were critically wounded, medics have revealed.
