Posted on July 15, 2016 by Olivia Mackinnon
The world has been shocked by the events in Nice, France this morning.
The report is still developing, however it can be confirmed that at least 73 people were killed and many more injured after a truck packed with weapons and grenades ploughed through a crowd who were celebrating Bastille Day festivities.
There has been much footage posted around, showing the devastation and the aftermath of the event, but eerie footage of the truck slowly approaching the crowd moments before the attack has been released.
Police and officials can be seen driving beside the truck in the footage, and it has been reported that they shot at the truck as it drove along.
Children allegedly thought the gunshots were fireworks going off.
The footage then shows the truck picking up speed before disappearing into the crowd.
The next frame shows the crowd fleeing the scene. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by the tragedy in Nice this morning.
