Bar and restaurant patrons used what they could to block door in order to repel knife-wielding attackers at London's Borough Market after a vehicle rammed into pedestrians on London Bridge, witnesses told NBC News.
Fabio Lamas, 20, was working at the Wheatsheaf Pub when he heard someone shout "knives, knives, knives" and he said someone inside used a barrel to block the door, and staff locked the doors and gates.
At another restaurant in Borough Market, witnesses said that an attacker entered and stabbed a woman in the neck, and a manager threw bottles at the man and staff used a bar stool to push him outside.
Forty-eight people have been hospitalized and seven people have died. Police killed three suspects and continue to investigate.
