Eyewitness accounts (genuine US ones - lol at all of them claiming they thought they were going to die)

& finally, two quotes from an eye-witness... John Smeaton (these are real)
John just surpassed himself on the National ITV new. The interviewer asked "What message do you have for the bombers" - he replied "This is Glasgow we'll just set about you"
John done an interview on CNN and they asked how he restrained the guy and he said "Me and other folk were just trying 2 get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him!"
