Dozens of terrified concertgoers run for their lives in dramatic video footage captured by a journalist for the French newspaper Le Monde.

The video shows several fans, many of whom are injured, desperately trying to escape the massacre at the Bataclan concert hall on Friday night. Some of the frightened individuals can be seen hanging from the windows as terrorist gunfire rattles the venue.

Over 80 hostages were killed in the Paris attack, which occurred during an Eagles of Death Metal concert.

A spokesman for the California-based rockers said all band members were able to safely flee the venue. The group, which have since cancelled their European tour, sent their condolences to “all of the people involved in this tragic situation.”

Warning: The video contains graphic images that some viewers may find disturbing.

      Hi to everyone ,
      in the BATACLAN only died 150 people & it’s a very very bad for humanity .
      I am very sorry for this actions .
      all of you who are watching the movies like this should take a look to the IRAQ , Afghanistan , Syria , Lebanon , Palestine , Egypt , Libya, Yemen & other places in the Middle East either other place in the world .
      Unfortunately politicians in Europe & USA increase these actions by their politics .
      if you ( Humans & good people in the world ) enforce your Governors to take a good actions about other people in the world , all humans may experience the peace .
      at the end , I am very very sorry about these actions whole the world .

      One of the most harrowing things I’ve seen in a while. We watch stuff like this and worse in films, but it’s a whole different viewing experience when you know it’s real.

        Yes, and hearing those gunshots knowing that innocent people, who only wanted to go to a concert and listen to music, are dying. This will haunt me for a long time.
