Humanity amid terror: NICE residents offer help on social media
Probably the worst kind of terror attack in France, the Nice macabre will be etched in everyone's mind for years to come. When the authorities confirm a terror angle, the residents of Nice believe in something beyond the comprehension of extremists-HUMANITY.
Amid calls for #prayforNice, residents of the city turn to Twitter offering help for the scared, helpless and the injured.
Some users also redirect victims to #PortesOuvertesNice, if they wish to get shelter or a free pick-up. In fact, a visit to the site exposes you to a plethora of information-starting basic things that tend to skip out of one's mind at the time of crisis, for instance country code.
One Iclo says on Twitter, "If you are looking for a lift or a safe place to stay. I'm 30 minutes away from Nice. Let me know!"
