When a gunman came into their crowded Paris-bound train car trying to cock his AK-47, three Americans realized "It was either do something or die," so they sprang into action, tackling him before he could get off a shot, one of the three said today.

..

Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, National Guard Spcl. Alek Skarlatos and their civilian friend Anthony Sadler were on the Amsterdam-to-Paris train Friday when a gunman, who had already fired a shot in another car, came into their carriage.

..

"At that time he was cocking the AK-47," Sadler said today from the U.S. Embassy in Paris, "So it was either do something or die."

..

The three spoke together for the first time together today, detailing what happened Friday when a man identified by authorities as Ayoub El Khazzani began his attack on board the high-speed train.

..

"In times of crisis ... do something," Sadler said. "Hiding or sitting back is not going to accomplish anything."

..

Skarlatos said the first thing he heard was the gunshot from the other car, which French authorities said wounded a passenger.

..

Stone said the sound woke him up from "a deep sleep," and when he turned and saw the gunman, his first thought was about "survival, to survive and for everyone on the train to make it."

Stone said he put the attacker in a chokehold, but the gunman kept pulling more weapons. The attacker started jabbing at Stone with a box cutter and all three friends began punching and hitting him to subdue him.

..

He seemed like he was ready to fight to the end. So, so were we," Stone said.
