"At roughly 10 a.m. Albarghouti was at the Blacksburg, VA campus to meet with his graduate adviser. He sensed that something terrible had just happened on campus, explaining, 'Everyone (was) running and screaming. The situation was so frightening. I ran to a safe place and then decided to record the situation using my cellphone.'Albarghouti captured and shared a fleeting moment.
He then sent his video to CNN's I-Report, a citizen-reporter video blog site, which repeatedly used it to accompany its other reporting of the incident. This has been without doubt the worst mass shooting tragedy in U.S. history, and Albarghouti was the one to capture the incident for the world."
