ISIS Attack France - Hero Cop Who Took Place Of The Hostages Dies (Video)

The French government has just announced the sad passing of Mr Arnaud Beltrame, the absolute hero cop who took the place of the hostages in the French supermarket and went in with an open mobile phone in his pocket, allowing his colleagues to storm in and shoot the terrorist at the best possible time before he could take more lives.

At the time, before being taken out, the ISIS terrorist realized what was happening and shot Lieutenant-Colonel Beltrame multiple times.

He was taken to hospital where he was operated for several hours but died moments ago. Both French President Emmanuel Macron and the Interior Minister Gérard Collomb have praised the man for his selflessness and his call to duty.

Minister Collomb tweeted: “The Lieutenant Colonel Betrame has left us. Died as a patriot. Never France will forget his heroism and his sacrifice. With a heavy heart, I ask for the country’s support for his family, those near him and his colleagues of the gendarmerie.”

Many in France feel that this is the man who saved many lives today during a brutal terrorist attack which killed 3 people and wounded 12 others.

French citizens have started a petition calling upon President Emmanuel Macron to give the man a medal for his heroism.
