Pregnant woman clings to ledge, pulled to safety during Paris attacks

One such story is of a pregnant woman, seen in a video clinging to the edge of the Bataclan theater, where gunmen opened fire during a concert.

According to ABC News, the man shooting the video is journalist Daniel Psenny. As he shoots the video, you hear him ask, “What’s happening?” in French.

The woman can be heard pleading, “Please, please. I’m going to fall. I’m pregnant.”

As the woman hangs on for her life, you can hear gunfire in the background.

She holds on to the ledge for more than 2 minutes until another person finally reaches down to help her.

ABC News reports that the journalist who shot the video stopped recording to help the victims, but he too was shot. He survived.
