Fox News has released a video showing how an aid worker rescued a young girl from alleged ISIS snipers in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
“David Eubank, a 10-year veteran of the Army Special Forces, abandoned caution to save the young girl by running into an open area in the middle of war-torn Mosul, grabbing her and running her back. Amazingly, both he and the girl survived.
“I thought, ‘If I die doing this, my wife and kids would understand,’” Eubank told the Los Angeles Times.
The video shows Eubank readying himself to save the girl behind a tank as gunfire erupts around him. He waited for the coalition forces to drop smoke before rushing into the open area while his colleagues put down covering fire with AK-47-style rifles. The whole event only took about 12 seconds,” The Daily Caller’s article reads.
The event reportedly took place outside a former Pepsi factory in Mosul earlier in May.
“Eubank is used to offering help in dangerous situations. Aside from his decade of military experience, he has also worked as an aid worker in Burma, where he delivered aid to areas where normal volunteers simply could not go. He formed the Free Burma Rangers while living abroad, but the group’s mission has recently focused on the ISIS issue,” the article added.
Iraqi security forces are currently working to drive ISIS terrorists from the historical part of Mosul and nearby areas. The area known as Old Mosul is the only remaining ISIS stronghold inside the Iraqi city.
