There’s still so much we’re waiting to learn about the Boston bombing, but now we’re finding out what went on right before one of the suspects was killed and the other was captured!
While Boston and the rest of the world were waiting for some answers, one man was being held captive by the brothers wondering if he would survive this nightmare.
A Chinese man who is only going by his American nickname, Danny, for safety reasons has revealed the terrifying moments that occurred when Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev carjacked him.
Tamerlan reportedly admitted to Danny that he had been involved in the Boston bombing and both men wanted to go to New York, which apparently could have been the next location under attack!
After hitting up ATMs and thinking about ways to escape, Danny though it was going to be all over for him
Luckily, his vehicle didn’t have enough gas to get them there, and as they stopped at a cash only gas station, he was able to make his escape and alert officials!
While one brother went into the station to pay and another was checking out the car, Danny ran to another nearby gas station where he hid and called 911.
The brothers did not come after him.
Thanks to his escape and quick action, officials were able to track down the vehicle which eventually led to the death of Tamerlan and the capture of Dzhokhar.
We can't imagine how terrifying those 90 minutes were, but we're glad Danny was brave, strong and able to escape!
He just might have stopped another tragedy from occurring!
