Brave Tobias Ellwood, who works closely with Boris Johnson in the Foreign Offoce, battled to save the life of a policeman in the Westminster terror attack today. Police were telling visitors to run away, but Mr. Ellwood ran to the wounded cop. A terrorist had attacked a policeman with a knife and Mr. Ellwood gave him mouth to mouth resuscitation and tried to staunch his wounds until help arrived. Mr. Ellwood is the MP for Bournemouth East, and is a Tory party politician and ex-soldier. He served in the Royal Green jackets as a captain and is now a minister in the Foreign Office, frequently appearing in Parliament with Boris Johnson. Boris is in the US in Washington right now.
Tragically, in spite of Mr. Ellwood’s strenuous efforts, the policeman he tried to save, PC Keith Palmer, died in hospital. Mr. Ellwood also lost his brother Jonathan to terrorism. His brother died in the 2002 Bali bombing. Mr. Ellwood, as the last person to see PC Keith Palmer alive, is witness to a murder case.
He said: ” I ran towards him, and I tried to save him, through mouth to mouth and staunching his wounds, but he had lost too much blood. I am a witness, so I cannot say anything. This is a tragedy.”
Parliament is in lockdown, but one lady knocked into the freezing Thames by the terrorist’s SUV is in a bad way, but still alive.
Boris Johnson is in the US right now, exchanging ideas with the Trump government on how to defeat terrorist and Daesh.
