So according to him, he is in a small area with about 20 people who are bottlenecked trying to get out a door. He blocks the door into the area from
the chaos so these 20 or so people have time to get out. From what he said, he held the door for 10-20 seconds. In his panic filled mind at that
moment, he was the hero to those 20 or so people by giving them time to escape.
I don't know. Yes, some on the other side of that door could have gotten killed because of his actions, or maybe not. He could have been holding a
door to a hundred bottlenecked on the other side wanting to get through. Those in the rear may have died no matter what.
It is easy to sit here safe and cozy and claim how smart and level headed you'd be in that situation. But for me, I won't judge him. Not because I
think he was right, but because we don't function logically under panic. No one knows what they will do until they are in the fray.
*** Just wanted to add ... everyone is calling him a coward, but I think he's actually pretty brave telling this story on national TV ... you can tell
he knows it doesn't sound good and that he's broken up about it. He's gonna get a lot of grief for his story, and once things settle for him and he
has time to really contemplate what happened that night, it may eat him up alive.
