A man, Matthew James, was a victim of the armed attack that left 27 dead in a beach in Tunisia.

James shielded Wilson, taking 3 bullets for her and telling her to run.

“He took a bullet for me. I owe him my life because he threw himself in front of me when the shooting started.

“He was covered in blood from the shots but he just told me to run away.

“He told me, “I love you, babe. But just go – tell our children that their daddy loves them.

“It was the bravest thing I’ve ever known.

“I had to leave him under the sunbed because the shooting just kept on coming.

“I ran back, past bodies on the beach, to reach our hotel. It was chaos – there was a body in the hotel pool and it was full of blood.

“You just can’t explain how terrible it was. It was chaos with screaming and gunshots.

“I’m just so glad Matthew is alive, because so many other people are dead.”

“We were just on the sunbeds, messing around and having a nice time, when we heard these sounds.

“The shooting had started and there was a man with a gun opening fire all around.

“It is hard to remember just exactly what was going on.

“I only saw the one man in dark clothing but people were being shot.

“Matthew put himself in front of me, then he was hit.

“He moved and the man shot him again. Again he tried to move and he was shot again.

“He was shouting and blood was pouring out all over.

“I was screaming and it was chaos as more shots were coming out. We were down on the floor next to the sunbeds to shelter but the shots just kept on coming.

“He just told me to go, to look after our kids and that he loved me.

“I had to go and made it back to the hotel.

“I hid in a towel cupboard to make sure I was safe. It was dark and I could hear people walking around – it was terrifying.

“Eventually it became quieter and I came out.

“I was desperate to find out what had happened to Matthew but no one was around to help. It was so badly organised with no one to help and hardly anyone speaking English.”

Sarah added: “I didn’t know if he was dead or alive. I was even looking under white sheets to see if it was his body.

“I kept on speaking to people and after about two hours somebody handed me a phone and said, ‘I have a very grumpy man on the phone who won’t do anything until he has spoken to you.’

“It was Matthew and that was the first time I knew he was alive.

“He just told me he loved me and that he had had an operation to save his life. I’ve been to the hospital intensive care and I’m just staying here now.

“His pelvis was shattered by the bullet and he also had a heart attack. But he is alive.

“I’m just praying we can get out of here as soon as we can.”
