Inside the Attack on Paris-Bound Train: the Timeline of Terror

When a gunman armed with an automatic rifle and a box cutter began an attack on a train from Amsterdam to Paris, several passengers said they went into "survival" mode and jumped into action.Here is an inside-look at the apparent timeline of terror on board the train Friday, according to the passengers.National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, 22, of Roseburg, Oregon, said the first thing he heard was a gunshot.His friend, Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, 23, of Carmichael, California, said the sound woke him up from "a deep sleep." When he turned and saw the gunman, identified by French authorities as Ayoub El-Khazzani, his first thought was about "survival, to survive and for everyone on the train to make it."American Mark Moogalian was the first person to disarm the gunman, according to a statement Sunday from Moogalian's family."When the gunman came out of the bathroom another person engaged him and was thrown to the side, Mark then jumped in and after a struggle was able to get the AK-47 away," the statement said."Mark then turned around to get his wife out of harm's way but did not realize the gunman still had a pistol," the statement added. "He shot Mark in the back, the bullet went through his lung and exited his collarbone. When Mark went down that's when the gunman retrieved the AK-47. Mark was able to get to another car and that's when other(s) rushed in.""Alek just yells, 'Spencer go!'" Skarlatos and Stone's friend Anthony Sadler said."And Spencer just gets up within five seconds of the guy being in the car and just rushes back there," Sadler, 23, a senior at Sacramento State University in California, said. "He gets up, I get up and Alek gets up and all three of us just rush back there."Stone tackled the attacker to the ground, Sadler said. As Sadler, Skarlatos and a fourth passenger, British businessman Chris Norman, jumped in to hold him down, the attacker pulled out a box cutter and slashed Stone, Sadler said."He seemed like he was ready to fight to the end," Stone said. "So were we."Stone said he choked the attacker unconscious while Skarlatos hit him in the head.Once the gunman was hogtied on the floor, Stone went to help Moogalian, who was also injured. Stone said he used his fingers to stop bleeding in the Moogalian's neck.El-Khazzani, 25, was taken into custody as the train was stopped in Arras, France, about two hours northeast of Paris. He is being questioned by French counterterrorism police outside Paris.El-Khazzani's first lawyer, Sophie David, told ABC News in a phone interview that El-Khazzani denied planning an attack and said he wanted to rob passengers and escape by jumping off the train. The suspect also denied any ties or affiliation to terror groups or radical Islam, David said.Skarlatos, Sadler, Stone and Norman received France's highest medal at the Elysee Palace today, making them Chevalier, knights of the Legion of Honour.French President Francois Hollande said the men showed "that faced with terror, we have the power to resist. You also gave a lesson in courage, in will, and thus in hope."Two other passengers, Moogalian and another person who wished to remain anonymous, will reportedly be honored at a later time.Moogalian remains in intensive care today, according to the Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Lille.Stone, who underwent surgery to reattach his thumb that the attacker slashed with the box cutter, is expected to travel to a medical center in Germany today to receive further medical attention, according to the U.S. European Command.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

What Are Some Ways to Keep My Hair Really Healthy?
Use professional shampoo & conditioner. I know it may seem like a rip-off, however all the shampoos like Pantene, Garnier, etc. have a high alcohol content....since the normal pH of your hair is 4.5-5.5, things containing high amounts of alcohol throw your hair all out of whack and cause breakage, split-ends, fly-aways, etc. The reason these shampoos make your hair feel soft is because they contain high amounts of humectants, which are just a cover for how damaging they really are! Another tip is ALWAYS use a thermal protector while applying heat. Heat appliances cause tons of damage to your hair. Usually this is a cream/clear gel you apply before blow drying. Never use a flat iron on hair that is not completely dry!1. Split End Help. ( 10 Points) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?For sure you should get a trim and maybe even cut your hair as short as you are comfortable doing it. You should for no reason straighten or dye your hair. Look for some Garnier Fructis or Pantene shampoos and conditioner for curly hair so that it extra moisturizes it and helps the split ends repair themselves. I say from experience that ppl with curly hair have really bad split ends, which is why we have special stuff in our hair products. The split ends wont magically go away in like a month or a few weeks, but you will see improvement after a while. Oh, and for sure DO NOT PICK THEM OFF!! It will just make it worse. Every two months until your hair is healthy get a trim. just maybe half an inch or an inch will be just fine. Eventually your hair will go back to normal. Good luck with that!.2. Whats the best shampoo conditioner for cheap?clever or V05 are solid inexpensive ($a million) shampoos, yet whilst it is composed of conditioner i could bypass Tresemme ($6) it does an somewhat solid interest. i take advantage of salon shampoo because of the fact i am form of a hair snob, yet I nonetheless use the cheap conditioner. Pantene is undesirable on your hair (too plenty protein and reasons alot of greater build up on the hair) so i does not bypass there. desire this permits! My hair is oily, superb, and colour-taken care of if that helps you any!3. How can I get my curly hair to be nice like Taylor Swift?Haha i have the same hair long and curly..but not pretty curly! im completely obsessed with taylor and her hair so i did so playing with it and what you really NEED to get is the conair hot sticks!! they are these little flexible curlers and they are not very expensive and i would look like a frizz ball without them!! you can like get them at walmart. anyways what i do when iwear my hair curly is like i get up and get in the shower and wash it and condition it and this may sound weird but dont use a whole lot of conditioner just enough to get it done cause it will help your hair hold the curl the just get out and towel dry your hair till it is just damp and then put a curling mouse in it and frizz serum then finish blow drying it straight! and you know have the curlers on like when your gettin in the shower and then just make sure the little light is on meaning that they are hot enough and then seperate your hair into pretty small peices (if you have really thick hair then you might need to buy two sets cause they only have 14 in them and you use small sections) and then start from the botom of your hair and role it through your hair and pin it together youll see the instructions on how to pin them together and make sure you wrap it all the way to the top of your head and leave them for like 15 or 20 minutes while your finishin gettin ready and then use like a light hairspray about 5 minutes before you take them out then your done. i know this thing was really long but its not that hard lol!!!! hope i helped good luck!!!!!!!!
