Norway Tragedy:I saw many dead people
The police uniform shouted for the campers to come closer. The gunman who killed at least 80 people at an island youth camp northwest of Oslo used his disguise to lure in his victims, then shot them twice to make sure they were dead, survivors said in the village of Sundvollen, taken after the massacre.
"I lost several friends," said Berzingi, whose pants were stained with blood. He said he used the cell phone of one of his fallen friends to call police.
"I saw many dead people," said 15-year old Elise, whose father, Vidar Myhre, didn't want disclose her last name. She just feet away the gunman when he opened fire in the camp on Utoya island.
Elise said she had just come out from an information meeting in a nearby building, she heard gunshots. She saw a police officer and thought she was safe, but then he started shooting.
"He first shot people on the island. Afterward he started shooting people in the water," she said.
The girl phoned her parents, whispering to them what was going on. “They told me not to panic and that everything would be OK." Her parents also told her to get rid of a brightly colored jacket she was wearing to not draw attention to herself.
Police said the man arrested in the shooting is Norwegian and had set off a bomb that killed seven people outside the prime minister's headquarters in Oslo.
A Sundvollen hotel, but the stories they told were of utter terror.
Dana Berzingi said the fake police officer ordered people to come closer, then pulled weapons and ammunition from a bag and started shooting.
