Three people were killed and 20 others wounded Wednesday after a terrorist attack at Britain’s Parliament sent crowds of tourists and lawmakers fleeing for safety.
The victims included a police officer stabbed at the House of Commons who died despite the efforts of doctors and a passing government minister to save him.
Two other victims were struck by a 4×4 vehicle that plowed into people walking on nearby Westminster Bridge. Some of the wounded pedestrians suffered “catastrophic” injuries, doctors said.
A woman was pulled alive from the River Thames below the bridge with serious injuries.
The assailant, thought to be acting alone, was brought to the ground by a gunshot and also died, NBC News reports.
