John Barrowman is shaken up after narrowly missing an injury when a car ploughed into pedestrians in Germany on Wednesday.
The actor, best known for his role on longtime sci-fi show Doctor Who, shared details of the accident on Twitter, alongside harrowing footage of the aftermath.
“We think we have witnessed a terrorist attack here in Berlin,” the 55-year-old actor wrote online. “We’re not sure, there’s a lot of people, dead bodies all over the place.
“We’ve seen a car that came down the road and ended up in a storefront covering three city blocks, it’s pretty horrific.”
Moments later he posted a video of himself at the scene as he shared an update.
In the video, he pans over a busy Berlin street to show the damage, noting the dozens of local police officers and emergency medical responders on the scene. He showed viewers where the car drove along the pedestrian area, eventually crashing into a storefront.
“I heard the bang and the crash… we were in a store and we came out and we just saw the carnage,” he says in the video.
He is in Berlin with his husband, Scott Gill. At the end of the video, he pointed out the helicopters that were arriving to airlift victims out.
Later, it was revealed the man in the car drove into people on a street corner, before getting the car back on the road and then crashing into a shop window about a block further on, according to police spokesman Thilo Cablitz.
A teacher was killed, and 14 of her students were seriously injured. In all, six people sustained life-threatening injuries and another three were seriously injured, fire service spokesman Adrian Wentzel said.
It’s not yet clear if the incident was an accident.
