British taxi driver Perry who escaped suicide bomber: ‘It’s a miracle I’m still alive’ | Abroad

Taxi driver David Perry also wants to thank everyone for all the get well wishes. “We are completely blown away by it,” he says. The driver now needs some time and rest to process what has happened.

Minor cuts

Last Sunday at 10:59 a.m., a terrorist detonated his bomb belt in Perry’s taxi. It happened in front of a hospital in Liverpool. Only the terrorist was killed. Perry only suffered from tinnitus and minor cuts. Luckily no one else was outside at the time.

The man who blew himself up was a Syrian asylum seeker. British police have identified him as 32-year-old Emad Al Swealmeen. He was carrying an explosive device that he had assembled himself. The man had been at odds with British asylum authorities for years. It is still unclear what his motive was.

Top level

England has raised the terror threat after yesterday morning’s attack in the city of Liverpool from ‘substantial’ to ‘serious’, the second highest level. This means that the British are strongly considering even more attacks.
