An American man named Matthew was one of the survivors who escaped terrorists at at the Eagles of Death Metal show the night of the Paris attacks.
But that wasn't the first time Matthew evaded tragedy — in 2001, he also survived the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center in New York.
The 36-year-old was shot in the leg by attackers in the Bataclan, but pretended to be dead and dragged himself to safety as they reloaded their weapons.

He told French newspaper Le Monde he was able to get himself outside the building:
"I inched forward centimetre by centimetre. At one point, I saw the ledge of the exit at arm's reach. I was able to grip it with one finger, then the other."
Outside, Matthew was found by two men who dragged him to safety. He continued:
"I was playing dead. When I felt someone dragging me by the arms, I didn't even look up. I said, or at least in my head – 'I love you, my angel.'"
Matthew stayed at the flat of his rescuer for a few hours before the injured pair were allowed to be taken to a local hospital.
It turns out, this wasn't the first time Matthew escaped an attack — he had been on the street below the World Trade Center in Manhattan during the September 11 attacks 14 years ago.

He was heading to a work meeting when the first airplane struck one of the twin towers. He recalled:
"I sprinted across half of Manhattan. But what I went through in the Bataclan was 1,000 times worse."
Matthew's wife was supposed to go to the concert with him in the Bataclan, but was unable to go because they couldn't find a babysitter.
It seems strange to call him lucky, but we imagine his wife feels blessed right now.
We wish the survivor a speedy recovery.

As we reported earlier, Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian, and Khloé Kardashian's companies are supposedly going after Blac Chyna's request to trademark the name Angela Renee Kardashian — which will likely be her married name once she and Rob Kardashian make it official.
In response to the reports, an insider close to the momma-of-two told People:
