Survivors’ accounts of the Utoya youth camp massacre

From the CBC, the account of Adrian Pracon, 21, a youth leader at the camp:

“Suddenly, the gunman started to shoot at people again.”

It was then that Adrian lay among his dead friends.

“I was lucky. I was lying on the ground and I played dead, that’s why he put the bullet in my shoulder,” he said. “I didn’t move, I was so focused not to move. He shot from a distance of one metre.

“I could hear his breath, I could hear his shoes. I could feel the warmth from the gun.”

Pracon said people started screaming when the real police arrived, fearing they were also a part of the attack.
