Hero police officer injured after risking life at London Bridge terror attack to run London Marathon
A heroic police officer injured during the London Bridge terror attack is taking on a huge feat of endurance to raise money for the hospital that helped him get back on his feet.
Despite being off-duty last June when the terror attack happened, Charlie Guenigault risked his life to stop the massacre. He ran towards the scene and was subsequently injured by one of the three attackers who brought terror to the streets of the capital.
Less than a year on from the horror attack, Charlie is planning to run the London Marathon to raise money for London hospital which treated him in the days, weeks and months following the attack.
He told Good Morning Britain: "It's such a great way of getting back into fitness," before adding: "You spend 70 days in hospital but you're there for a reason, you're there to get well. It might take longer, but at the end of the day the doctors are there to help you."
Charlie said that running the 26.2-mile route was a perfect way to give something back to the hospital and the staff there who saved his life.
