An alleged witness to the attack in Woolwich, England recounted his story on twitter. (Some senstive language below.) The man, who goes by Boya Dee, wrote a string of tweets shortly after the attack. The first one was pure shock at seeing an innocent man beheaded.
Ohhhhh myyyy God!!!! I just see a man with hishead chopped off right in front of my eyes!— Boya Dee (@BOYADEE) May 22, 2013
Then Boya Dee jumps to the big finish: a police officer showed up and shot the machete-wielding suspects.
Oh my God!!!! The way Feds took them out!!! It was a female police officer she come out the whip and just started bussssin shots!!— Boya Dee (@BOYADEE) May 22, 2013
Boya Dee wasn't sure if the Woolwich attack was the craziest thing he had seen in his entire life, but it was up there.
Mate ive seen alot of shit im my time but that has to rank sumwhere in the top 3. I couldnt believe my eyes. That was some movie shit— Boya Dee (@BOYADEE) May 22, 2013
Then he backtracks and tells the story. Two black men jumped out of a car and attacked a white guy with machetes.
The two black bredas run this white guy over over then hop out the car and start chopping mans head off with machete!!— Boya Dee (@BOYADEE) May 22, 2013
According to Boya Dee, the attackers looked like they were on drugs.
People were asking whyyy whyyy they were just saying we've had enough! They looked like they were on sutn! Then they start waving a recolver— Boya Dee (@BOYADEE) May 22, 2013
The police apparently didn't want to move in until air support showed up.

After seeing the attackers go after armed officers, he was sure they were on drugs.

Then the officer shoots down the first attacker.

The second attacker tried to use a gun, but it backfired

It goes to show, you never know what will happen, even in the most ordinary parts of your day.

Boya Dee, it turns out, has a rap video under Boya DeeMarko. Be warned that this contains sensitive language, and is sort of awesome.
