DENVER -- A Denver man who is in Barcelona, Spain, was nearby the site where someone drove a van into a crowd of people on Thursday.

Eric Lunsford shot video of the aftermath. He was hunkered down with others in a store near where the attack happened. The lights were out.

He said he and others stayed in place for more than two hours before police escorted them out.

"We looked out and it was a mass of people running through the area," he said. We were probably not even 100 yards from where it happened.

"People were frantic. They didn't know what to do climbing walls jumping through windows."

After they left the store, Lunsford said police escorted them out of the area very quickly.
