Westminster terror attack: Fourth victim dies in hospital

Westminster terror attack: Fourth victim dies in hospital

The Prime Minister has praised the "extraordinary" bravery of Tobias Ellwood as calls grew for him to be given an honour after he battled to save the life of a police officer in the Westminster terror atrocity.

Cmdr. Rowley confirmed that at least 20 people were injured in the attack, which began about 2:40 p.m. local time when a auto drove over Westminster Bridge, hitting and injuring a number of bystanders.

'He had multiple wounds, under the arm and in the back.

His heroic efforts were unfortunately in vain as PC Palmer, a husband with a five-year-old daughter, died from his injuries.

Witnesses said the former soldier ran toward the chaos without hesitation when a man jumped out of a vehicle at London's Parliament Square and plunged a knife into the officer's head and neck, the Telegraph reported. I'm not allowed to say anything, I'll get into trouble. "He went above and beyond and did all he could to save a police officer".

Palmer was one of four people killed by a lone attacker who ploughed a vehicle into tourists on a bridge and then ran through the gates of parliament armed with a knife. The police officer died before they could be flown to hospital.

Ellwood was later seen with bloodied hands talking to officers close to the incident, The Telegraph reported.

Tobias Ellwood, a former army officer, was seen giving first aid and mouth to mouth resuscitation.

Ellwood is a former soldier and is now Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Minister for the Middle East and Africa.

Photographs of Ellwood, in a blue suit, helping medical staff and policemen treat the officer later emerged.

The father-of-two lost his brother Jonathan in the 2002 Bali bombing - an attack in which 202 people died.

"I know the whole House will join me in sending our deepest condolences to his family - and to the families and friends of all those who have been killed or injured in yesterday's terrible attacks".
