Boyfriend of Woman Seen Dangling From Paris Window Didn't Know She Was Pregnant
A woman who was filmed desperately clinging onto a window ledge during the Paris attacks had not yet told her boyfriend she was pregnant, it has emerged.
As she held on to the window at the Bataclan concert hall on Friday night, the unnamed woman was heard shouting in French: “Please, please, I’m pregnant!”
According to reports, the woman’s boyfriend did not know she was 10 weeks pregnant. She was planning to tell him the news when she reached the three-month mark, The Sun reported.
In the video, a man was seen reaching down to save her. He has been identified as Sebastien Besatti, a musician attending the concert when gunfire rang out.
"She was begging people down below if they would catch her if she jumped,” he told La Province. “But it was chaos down there. The pregnant woman, who was exhausted, begged me to help her get back inside. That's what I did."
After the video was shared on the web on Saturday, family and friends confirmed that the woman, who is in her late 20s, and her child were fine.
“She wanted to thank everyone who helped her, in particular the man who quickly held out his hand and help her back up," a friend told the Huffington Post in Paris.
