'Get him': How four men foiled a bloody French train attack


UPDATED August 22, 2015 4 p.m. PT

First they heard gunshots, then the passengers, who a few moments later would become heroes, saw a man wielding a machine gun as their high-speed train chugged through France

Spencer Stone, a member of the U.S. Air Force, and his friend Alek Skarlatos, of the U.S. National Guard, immediately looked at each other

"Get him," Skarlatos, 22, said. And like that, Stone, 23, jumped out of his seat, ran about 32 feet, and tackled the gunman, who had come out of a bathroom armed with an AK-47, a pistol and a knife.
