The Lebanese father lost his life when he threw himself at the suicide bomber, causing the bomber to detonate early.

Twin suicide bomb attacks in Beirut claimed the lives of 44 people and injured more than 200, but in the aftermath of the tragedy one man has been credited with helping to save the lives of “hundreds” after he lost his own life tackling one of the bombers who was preparing to blow themselves up in the crowd.

As crowds began to gather outside a mosque in Beirut targeted by a suicide bomber on Thursday, Lebanese father Adel Termos spotted a second bomber approaching the crowds and threw himself at them, according to local media reports.
