Video transcript

JOHN BARROWMAN: So my friend Mikey Kay told us to sit by a tree just in case anything else happens, because it's something that's between us, and any other vehicles that may come. It's really pretty bad, guys. There's over-- where we are here, there's a lot of police. There's a dead body in the middle of the road. And then over here, there is all of the emergency services that are trying to help victims and people. There's a lot of people walking with limps and injuries.

If I'm pointing to you from the road up there, the car came down onto the pavement. We had dinner in that restaurant last night. The car came down onto the pavement, then has come onto the road over there. Has hit somebody, then has gone down the road and come back on to the pavement down that way, and come back onto the pavement, and gone through a bunch of people, gone through the photograph that I posted of a cafe, and then right into a storefront window.

But the police presence is unbelievable. They are clearing out the area. But it was cordoned off. I heard the bang and the crash when we were in a store. And then we came out, and we just saw the carnage. And there's helicopters coming in now to airlift people. So I'm going to let you see this, then I'll get back to you.
