Hero taxi driver saved lives by 'locking suicide bomber in his cab' seconds before the 'attacker' detonated an explosive device outside a Liverpool women's hospital



A taxi driver is being hailed a hero after a vehicle exploded outside a hospital in the northern English city of Liverpool on Sunday, Nov. 14.



The taxi driver, who has been named locally as David Perry, is said to have thwarted a tragedy on Remembrance Day by locking a suspect inside his cab before a bomb the man was holding exploded outside a hospital in Liverpool.







Perry allegedly pulled up outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Sunday morning and after "noticing the device" jumped out of the cab and locked the man inside.



The car exploded just seconds before the nation was to fall into silence. As a result, Perry suffered from non-life-threatening injuries and is currently being treated at a local hospital.



The suicide bomber died in the explosion.







Perry stopped the car just outside the maternity ward of a local hospital, less than a mile from the reported intended target of a Remembrance Day service at Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral.



Present at the service the suicide bomber was targeting were military personnel, veterans, and civic dignitaries.Latest Post
