Adel Termos was walking with his daughter when he heard the first blast. A bomb had been detonated and it was sheer carnage. As he noticed a second bomber set to detonate he made a split-second decision to attack the bomber.

This act of courage killed him, but he has been hailed as a hero after his sacrifice likely saved dozens, if not hundreds of lives. And the news of his daughter’s survival has today been celebrated by thousands.

A Beirut-based physician Elie Fares told PRI that “many families, hundreds of families probably owe their completeness to his sacrifice.”

Isis quickly took to social media to claim responsibility for the attack, but this is yet to be verified. Many have taken to Twitter to hail Termos as a hero and to remember his selfless act and other victims.

Lebanon’s Prime Minister Tammam Salam condemned the attacks as “unjustifiable” and called on his citizens to unite against “plans to create strife”.

The bombing is the deadliest in the capital since the end of Lebanon’s civil war in 1990.
