In 2017, three terrorists driving a van ploughed into people in central London before taking to the streets to randomly attack anyone they came across.
At the same time, Ignacio Echeverría was having a typical Saturday Night out skateboarding with his friends. We hear how those two separate events came together with horrifying consequences.

And this was in my recommended 4 years later, This guy is a legend, I hate to hear that he didn't make it far enough in life, But like most heroes, I will remember this one, He did what must of us couldn't.

I don’t understand how all those people didn’t fight back collectively. If I know I’m about to meet death by the hands of another, I’m going to fight with all the life I have left. Just my opinion. although I do understand that everyone responds differently, ESPECIALLY in times of high duress.

The terrorists could have been killed x10 times faster if the police men didn't originally have bats, but if they had guns.

The worst of all is that these alleged attacks are perpetrated by the governments themselves, these false flag attacks have been carried out for thousands of years. -They always find everyone's passports. -they always have photos and the apartment where they live. -They are always loaded with homemade explosives. -Everybody always dies in confrontations and there is none left alive, much less do we listen to their defenses, just scapegoats to keep us busy hating everyone. its a shame that.

I remember how many adults around me think skaters are just irresponsible reckless individuals who will never grow up, then I just think to myself they will never have any idea what it’s like for this community and how we’ve always helped each other out and others in any way we can.

I couldn’t hold my tears 😭 Some people are there who are completely different. Today, I watched two documentaries and one was this beautiful human being’s who sacrificed his life for people who he even didn’t know and the other I watched is Josef Fritzl’s case and my mind is completely blown by now.

I wish that girl died instead of ignacio dont think of me as a bad guy but i think gentlemans are stupid i mean why would u risk ur life to save a girl out of chivalry so yeah i feel bad for ignacio heres the moral of the story(learn to mind ur own buisness and think about yourself before others safety) what i mean is save urself befor others

He saved someone who is weaker, more vulnerable and had a lesser chance of surviving. He sacrificed himself and that is truly noble. Your morals are different. I would hope if my family member was involved, someone would look out for them, hence why I look out for others. If you wish to be (imo) selfish, you are entitled to that, but who are you to judge someone with stronger morals as stupid.

What an utter legend. Every skater I've known has been willing to walk into a brawl and deck people who're acting up. Something about repeatedly jumping into a metal pole, bollocks first until you get a trick right breeds an insane level of perseverance and bravery.

Ignacio, what a kind, pure soul you have. I really cried my eyes out, but just of being so touched by this love this young man showed for his sisters & brothers. really he reminds me of Jesus Christ. He gave his life and it touches so many people all over the world. there are not many people this brave, fighting the dark, because it is really scary, but he showed us to trust our hearts and do the right thing and protect each other from harm & evil. I'm not saying that the ppl were evil, but their actions. R.I.P. Ignacio, I believe that you are somewhere, where just love exists. The same you showed to the people around you.

I watched the episode. This is not prison, this is the psychology used in boot camp. The idea is that submission in the form of an emotional and mental break is somehow a breakthrough. There are no long-term positive results from this type of program unless the parents are put through something equally as intense. These kids don't have a chance with parents like that. The young man with autism had absolutely no business being there. In his very literal, matter-of-fact world that was equivalent to punishment for an action. The action was hitting his mom in the head. He did so because she hit him with a phone and she had told him that if anyone hits him, hit them back. He followed her directions exactly. As his mother, she should have known that he would follow her directions. That family needs crisis management assistance and possibly a behavioral analyst.
