In an interview with 60 Minutes last night, Tasmanian teenager Emma Parkinson recalled the terrifying scenes she witnessed inside the Bataclan concert hall in Paris, when gunmen opened fire during an Eagles Of Death Metal show.
“I thought someone had fireworks. You know, like just little fireworks that you buy at the supermarket. I remember thinking, ‘What an idiot – who does that at a concert?’”
“It just sort of came through my head, ‘OK, I’ve been shot, did it hit anything important? Probably not … gotta keep going. So I kept going.”
“To be honest, somebody could have died right next to me and I probably wouldn’t have realised, because it was just people rushing. There was no-one [who] didn’t have blood on them. Everyone was covered. I’m just seeing people running as fast as they could.”
