In the statement, he did not refer to the reports given the day after the explosion by some media, which, citing his friends and social media entries, wrote that seeing that a passenger was manipulating the explosive, he locked it from the inside in the passenger compartment of the car, and then just before the explosion, he managed to jump out of the car. On the basis of these accounts of mind and courage, he was congratulated by Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Liverpool Mayor Joanne Anderson.
However, his wife Rachel denied these press reports earlier this week.
– The explosion occurred while he was in the car and how he managed to escape is a miracle. He must have had some guardian angels to look after him. There are a lot of rumors going around that he was a hero and locked a passenger inside the car … but the truth is he is undoubtedly lucky to be alive. Pray that this would not happen to anyone else
