Hiding in a what?
I’m the father of Alexandra Peltre, who survived the attack on Utoeya, Norway. The information given by the journalist in this report is not correct!
She was shot while trying to hide along the waterline. After being shot, she managed to swim a bit out from the shoreline, and when the gunman moved on, she managed to crawl back to land where she was laying next to a young man shot in the shoulder. The two of them shared a jacket or sweater for warmth.
The gunman was apprehended a short time later, and she received life saving first-aid by the police. There was not a wardrobe in sight!
This was a bad one. Someone heard “water” in the interview and mistook it for wardrobe, illogical though that may sound. We pulled the piece: GBU Editor
