Can't judge a book by its cover. A British politician acted with valor yesterday.

British MP Tobias Ellwood 

My condolences to the victims of the terrorist attack yesterday at Westminster. And my praise for MP Ellwood, who just to look at him would be the last person I'd pick for quick thinking and uncommon courage in the midst of horror.

A Conservative MP tried to resuscitate the police officer who died from stab wounds during in the Westminster terrorist attack.

Tobias Ellwood, a former soldier, was described as running in the “opposite direction to everyone else” and toward the injured officer, then giving the officer mouth-to-mouth intervention.

He also tried to stem the blood flowing from the seriously wounded man. He waited with the police officer until the arrival of the air ambulance.

The Foreign Office minister was later pictured with blood smeared on his face and hands, talking to police and Westminster officials.


Ellwood, who has been an MP for Bournemouth East since 2005, has been vocal on his opposition to British military intervention in Syria. Ellwood has also talked publicly about losing his brother Jon in the Bali bombings of October 2002.
