On the 29th November 2019, London Bridge became under attack by Usman Khan.
Usman Khan was known to the British Authority for his ‘terrorist motives’ and was visiting London on a rehabilitation program where he chose to carry out a horrific attack on the public.
Khan managed to kill two people and also wounding three others. Darryn Frost who was born in South Africa was on the scene near by when he realised the situation. He took it upon himself to not coward and run but to fight back
Darryn took the closest weapon he could find which was a ‘narwhal tusk’ from the wall in the Fishmongers’ Hall. With weapon in hand he charged towards the bridge with other the other two men where they attacked the knife wielding terrorist.
Mr Frost, whose identity was unknown until now, can be seen pinning Khan to the ground before being pulled away by a police officer. The terrorist was shot dead moments later.
Darryn’s efforts along with the two other members of public are what saved many more lives that day.
Mr Frost added: “He had knives in both hands and, upon seeing me with the narwhal tusk, pointed at his midriff.
“He turned and spoke to me, then indicated he had an explosive device around his waist. At this point, the man next to me threw his chair at the attacker, who then started running towards him with knives raised above his head.”
