Tsarnaev carjacking victim tells story
MANILA, Philippines - "I don't want to die." This was foremost in the mind of the carjack victim who was forced at gunpoint to drive the Tsarnaev brothers on the day of the MIT campus shooting.
In an interview published by Boston.com last Thursday, April 25, the victim, who wished to be identified as Danny, added a few more pieces to the timeline of events following the Boston bombing.
According to Danny, a black sedan swerved behind him as he was parked on the curb at Brighton Avenue, and a man in black clothes got his attention. Danny rolled his window down, and that's when everything went south.
Danny's 90 minutes with the Tsarnaev brothers aparently began with a chilling statement. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the man in black, asked if he had heard about the bombings in Boston. "I did that,” said Tamerlan. “And I just killed a policeman in Cambridge.”
The whole event, complete with ruminations about a potential future with a girl Danny secretly liked and the trip from Brighton Avenue to Watertown, culminated in a fortuitous escape from the Tsarnaev brothers, who let their guard down while trying to pay for gas.
Danny's escape, along with his subsequent call to the police, led to the shootout that occurred in Watertown, ending in the death of Tamerlan Tsarnaev and the arrest of Dzhokhar. - Rappler.com
