CHICOPEE, Mass (WWLP) — 22News heard from a Western New England University student currently studying abroad in Paris. His name is Bobby Caruso.
He said this is Fall break for students, so he and his friends were actually in Prague, Czech Republic during the attack.
However, he said he is not afraid to fly back to Paris Sunday, in fact, he was looking forward to being back where he’s called home for the past couple months, and stand united with the City.
Bobby Caruso told 22News, “The U.S. Embassy in Paris has been emailing us all, giving us instructions on just to avoid large demonstrations, avoid anywhere where there’s police activity, be safer than usual, stay with friends if we have to, but yeah we do absolutely plan on going back. We love Paris. It’s the most city in the world and it’s kind of really tragic to hear that this happened, especially after another attack only a few months ago.”
Caruso said he first found out about the attacks from a professor at Western New England who had contacted him.
He said some people in Prague hadn’t even heard about it, a day after the attack.
