Salim Toorabally is a skilled security guard, trained to deescalate most situations. That training was on full display the night of November 13, 2015, when Toorabally first denied one terrorist entrance to the Stade de France, and then later when he calmly lead survivors to safety.
He is credited with saving the lives of many that night, and has been labeled a hero. Since then, he has traveled the world to tell his story, even making several stops in the United States. “Those who do not speak have fear, and I find it terrible to be fearful,” he said.
