Abdul Rahiman helped about 30 people escape during the terror attack at Masjid Al Noor mosque on Friday. Since then he told Stuff.co.nz he has not been able to sleep, as he hears the screams of the children at night.
“I can see them when I close my eyes. I can see the young boy get shot as we tried to run to safety. I can see the baby that was in our group screaming, she was only two. I can’t sleep,” he said.
Rahiman said he helped 30 people out through a side door at the mosque, hoping they could jump the fence to safety.
“I saw the 12-year-old boy get shot, he was running with us, so was the young girl who is in Starship [hospital] now. I can see the bodies. How could he do that to our people, they didn’t hurt anyone. I can’t understand it.”
