Gary Edwards was one of the first emergency responders on the scene of Saturday’s atrocity and stayed there trying to save lives until 4.30am
A paramedic has described seeing a sea of bodies, with injured people and police officers “screaming for help” amid gunfire, moments after terrorists began their murderous campaign on London Bridge.
Gary Edwards, 29, who was the first paramedic on the scene, said he had “a gut feeling” about the extent of the tragedy as he arrived on the south side of the bridge at around 10.10pm on Saturday. He said he feared there was something “more sinister” than initial reports, which suggested a drink-driver running down pedestrians on the bridge, as he put on body armour and ran towards danger. The paramedic said he feared for his own safety as he prepared to come face to face with an armed attack.
