In continuing it's comprehensive coverage of the bombings at the Boston Marathon, on Friday evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed Tarek Ahmed.
A gas station clerk, Ahmed was working the evening "Danny" – a Chinese student who had been carjacked by the Tsarnaev brothers – escaped, and rushed into his store:
"He fell down, screaming, 'Please, please call me the police, they want to kill me, they have a gun, they have a bomb,' Ahmed told Piers Morgan. "The first thing I did, I tried to check his face, is the same face like I saw in the two pictures of the suspects. But it wasn't the same face."
Despite maintaining his composure throughout, Ahmed admitted to fearing for his life:
"I was waiting someone to shoot me at this moment. I was waiting to die at this moment."
Additionally, Friday also saw the return of Rudy Giuliani, as the former New York City mayor offered his analysis of the significane of Tamerlan Tsarnaev's travels to Russia:
"I think that's where, at least a lot of the training, a lot of the expertise got developed, in Dagestan, which puts the onus now on the FBI. Why wasn't that trip followed up on immediately? Why didn't we go find out ... the minute he went to Dagestan, here's a guy, we're warned by the Russian government this is a guy that's a jihadist, this is a guy that could be a terrorist. Now, he goes to Russia, i.e., Dagestan, now we should be following up on that immediately," insisted the one-time Republican presidential candidate. "The Russians must have followed him. They were interested in him for sure. They must have followed him when he went back to Russia. So what did they see him doing?"
And on Friday, Morgan spoke with Boston Globe photojournalist John Tlumacki.
The man who captured the iconic image of runner Bill Iffrig crumbling to the ground in the aftermath of the first blast, Tlumacki described the value of his pictures:
"It brought it to a personal level. You were able to see the people who this affected. And I think I did my job as a photographer, as a journalist. And I look back and I go, you know, I'm glad I did what I did. I know it was difficult for people to see these images, but we had to see it. The world had to see the horror that was there, that, you know, this was terrorism," he told the host. "I felt that my duty, as a photo journalist was to capture those images. I didn't even know if any other photographers were there. I just kept shooting what I could shoot"
