Terrifying Moment a Pregnant Woman Clung to Second Floor Window Ledge at the Bataclan

This is the terrifying moment a pregnant woman clung to a second floor window ledge at the Bataclan theatre in a desperate attempt to escape the deadly massacre inside the venue in Paris.
The video footage shows the woman struggling to hold on to the windowsill as people rushed out of the venue's back door, leaving a trail of blood as they dragged their dying friends from the scene. 
Terrified, she screams for help and shouts 'help, help, I'm pregnant' as people rush out of the theatre past the dead bodies outside the exit.
The woman's dramatic escape came after four masked militants armed with AK-47s marched into a rock concert at the Bataclan theatre and went on to slaughter more than 80 people. They detonated their suicide vests as police tried to raid the theatre.

The footage shows how bodies lie by the entrance – all apparently dead, before one moves and attempts to stand. 
Bleeding heavily, and unable to lift themselves, the camera captures the moment they try to use their phone – possibly to call for help.
The video was taken by Le Monde journalist Daniel Psenny from his flat in a building opposite. He was later injured himself, shot in the arm through his window.  
Witnesses have told of the horror which unfolded inside the theatre, where more than 1,000 people were watching rock band Eagles of Death Metal perform.
'It looked like a battlefield, there was blood everywhere, there were bodies everywhere,' Marc Coupris, 57, told the Guardian.
He added: 'I was at the far side of the hall when shooting began. There seemed to be at least two gunmen. They shot from the balcony.
