Fifty Shades Darker crew escape Nice tragedy

Fri, Jul 15, 2016, 01:54 PM
As news continues to unfold from the terrifying events in Nice, France, those in the area who were fortunately unaffected by the attack on Thursday night that saw 84 people killed and more than 100 injured are reaching out to confirm they are unhurt.

Among them are the ongoing production of `Fifty Shades Darker,' the sequel to `Fifty Shades Of Grey,' currently filming in the French Riviera near Nice.

Tony Molina, an American witness to the attack, told CNN: "There was still a crowd of people and then you just see this big white panel truck, I couldn’t see the driver, but it just kept going at different angles from left to right at 25 to 30 miles an hour.

"People were screaming and running. I work in homicide and I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s unbelievable."

The Promenade Anglais was packed on what is traditionally the biggest public holiday in France, when the man struck in the night.

The white lorry mounted the pavement repeatedly at approximately 40mph and steered directly towards men.

British holidaymaker Esther Serwah, 59, was staying in a hotel a short walk from the scene.

She said she had been on her way to the Promenade des Anglais for dinner with her daughters when people started screaming at her.

Serwah, from Surrey in UK, said: "I was just walking to the Promenade and then I saw everybody running and I just didn’t know what was going on. People were screaming at me in French but I didn’t understand.

"Some people were lying on the streets dead and people were running over the bodies. Everybody was saying it’s a terrorist attack. It’s just horrible, horrible, horrible. I’m in shock. I’m still shaking."

Bastille Day, which celebrates the storming of the Bastille prison in Paris during the French Revolution of 1789, is the France's biggest public holiday. The French Revolution gave the world the slogans of `Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.'
