Foreign minister tries to save cop killed in British Parliament attack

LONDON-When a police officer was stabbed by a suspected terrorist outside the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday, an unlikely figure rushed to his side: Tobias Ellwood, a New York-born United Kingdom lawmaker and British army veteran.

Foreign Office Minister Tobias Ellwood tried to give the stabbed officer mouth-to-mouth and tried to stop bleeding from his wounds.

Speaking to Jewish News, Mike Freer, MP for Finchley and Golders Green said: "Tobias reacted magnificently".

Police said at least 20 people were injured.

He was seen attempting to give the police officer mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and stem the blood flow by applying pressure to his wounds, according to The Telegraph.

Conservative MP Tobias Ellwood stands among the emergency services at the scene outside the Palace of Westminster, London, March 22, 2017.

He was later seen with blood on his forehead, hands and shirt cuffs while talking with staff at the Foreign Office.

The incident happened when an attacker in a auto ploughed into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge at around 2:40pm on Wednesday, before crashing into the railing of the Houses of Parliament.

Member of Parliament Tobias Ellwood was nearby when an unidentified assailant is believed to have driven a vehicle into pedestrians in central London Wednesday afternoon before crashing and attacking the officer.

Police shot the assailant after he stabbed the officer.

The 50-year-old is no stranger to terrorism - his 39-year-old brother Jonathan was among the 202 people killed in the 2002 Bali nightclub bombings.

The police officer appeared to be covered by grey blankets soon after.

"This was not only an attack on innocent people".
