AMERICAN HERO: Former Special Forces soldier runs into barrage of ISIS gunfire to save young Iraqi Muslim girl
Would an Iraqi soldier ever do this for an American Christian girl?
DailyCaller David Eubank, a 10-year veteran of the Army Special Forces, abandoned caution to save the young girl by running into an open area in the middle of war-torn Mosul, grabbing her and running her back. Amazingly, both he and the girl survived. “I thought, ‘If I die doing this, my wife and kids would understand,’” Eubank told the Los Angeles Times.
The video shows Eubank readying himself to save the girl behind a tank as gunfire erupts around him. The whole event only took about 12 seconds.
Eubank’s wife and three children all live near Mosul, offering aid to local Iraqis victimized by the ongoing conflict. He and his family are back in the U.S., but Eubank is already thinking of going back, as there is still much work to be done.
