Terrifying video of Paris attacks shows moment 2 women narrowly escape ISIS gunman

Shocking video has emerged of the moment an ISIS gunman opens fire on a restaurant in Paris and shows how two women huddling on the ground came within inches of being killed.

The security surveillance footage – first obtained by the Daily Mail – shows a quiet scene inside the restaurant moments before gunfire erupts, tearing through the windows and sending people diving for cover.

At one point in the video, the gunman appears to approach the restaurant’s patio and points what is believed to be an AK-47 at two women crouching under a table. The gun can be seen moving, but the weapon does not fire.
