A woman who survived the Paris massacre thanks to the hero of La Belle Equipe café who turned himself into a human shield and took a bullet for her is in hospital so traumatised she keeps repeating her saviour’s name, according to Dailymail.
Chloe Clement was inside the café celebrating a friend’s 35th birthday when it was struck by a hail of bullets during Friday night’s carnage. The happy occasion became a nightmare when two gunmen opened fire and her friends and colleagues began falling dead around her.
As a bullet whizzed towards Chloe, frozen in her horror, her friend Ludo Boumbas threw himself in between her and the gunman. Ludo sacrificed himself, but Chloe survived the deadly assault with a bullet wound to the arm.
She now lies in a hospital bed, remembering her many friends and colleagues who died during the birthday celebrations.
“She was on morphine and was in shock. She would barely speak,” said the manager of Café des Anges, 27-year-old Virgile Grunberg, who went to visit Chloe in hospital.
“She felt guilty because Ludovic died for her. She just kept repeating his name again and again.”
Ludo’s family have hailed his selfless bravery and called him ‘a hero.
