Josh Groban Details Terrifying Moments In Manhattan Near The Terror Attack

The Associated Press Josh Groban Details Terrifying Moments In Manhattan Near The Terror Attack

Singer and Broadway star Josh Groban and his dog were just half a block away from the incident.

Recording artist Josh Groban happened to be near the attack that occurred in New York City Tuesday afternoon near the World Trade Center.

"Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog", he wrote.

At 3:07 p.m., prior to the attack, Groban tweeted a photo of his dog. He says his dog pulled him into a park, taking him off the thoroughfare and potentially saving his life.

He followed up with, "I hope everyone's ok".

At least six people were killed after the driver of a Home Depot pickup truck reportedly struck numerous people near the West Side Highway in downtown Manhattan.

While Groban didn't see the attack, he reported hearing "8-10" gunshots, according to Business Insider and tweets from the singer himself. A Florida man, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov of Tampa, was captured alive and hospitalized. The suspect, who shouted "Allahu Akbar", was shot and subsequently taken into custody, law enforcement officials said. "Be safe with your kids out there".

"I'm shaking", Groban's thread continued.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has since branded the incident a "cowardly act of terror", and other celebrities have flocked to social media to send their condolences to those caught up in the tragedy.

Groban also praised first responders, writing of a video capturing their swift response, "Once I got far enough away I took this video of the quick response from our awesome NYPD and NYFD".

"Devastated for the victims and their families tonight & inspired by the spirit of this city".
