Hero taxi driver locks terror suspect in car before blast outside Liverpool hospital

A British taxi driver is being hailed as a hero after he locked a suspected terrorist in his car just seconds before a bomb exploded outside a Liverpool hospital.

The male suspect was the only person killed after his improvised explosive device detonated inside driver David Perry’s taxi outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Sunday, authorities said.

British police said Monday they were treating the blast as terrorist incident.

Surveillance footage obtained by the Sun showed Perry’s taxi pulling up outside the hospital’s entrance after he picked up the suspect about 10 minutes away.

The bomb exploded before the car had even come to a complete stop.

Seconds later, Perry can be seen fleeing from the driver’s door as smoke and flames billowed from the vehicle.

Sounds like a richly deserved Darwin award is in that passenger's future.

I suspect Islamic jihadists never learned about Darwin.

Yes, it does seem unlikely madrassahs would include that in their curricula....
