Ross Tomlinson was one of about three people who tried to stop terrorist Ahamed Aathill Mohamed Samsudeen in the New Lynn supermarket, Newshub reports. Tomlinson, a paramedic of 10 years, ran towards the commotion and joined several members of the public yelling at Samsudeen to drop the weapon. “I’ve had years of emergency training… but for those people they didn’t have that,” Tomlinson said. “So, it’s really impressive to see normal Kiwis step up… to kind of stand up for people that are injured and help them.”
