The three American heroes who stopped a Muslim terrorist intending to massacre people on a Paris-bound train say they knew how to react because they grew up together, playing war.
They were pressed into action when Ayoub El-Khazzani, loaded with an AK-47, a pistol, a box cutter, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and a bottle of gasoline, attacked.
Their story is told in the newly released movie is “The 15:17 to Paris,” directed by Clint Eastwood.
The three men hope movie goers take home the message that ordinary people they have an impact in life-threatening situations.
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Spencer Stone, U.S. Army National Guard Spc. Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler, a California State University student, sprinted toward El-Khazzani, a 26-year-old Moroccan national and alleged ISIS recruit, as he pointed his weapon at them on Aug. 15, 2015.
They spoke Thursday night with the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson.
