A teenager who was working at the Crocus Concert Hall when it was stormed by gunmen last month has described how panic broke out at the venue.

Artem Donskov, 14, was working as a cloakroom attendant at the time.

He says he and his colleagues helped people escape via a service corridor and directed them to the exits after the attackers sprayed concertgoers with gunfire.

“As I understood it, some man yelled that the terrorists might be coming towards us and everyone was frightened,” Artem said.

“At first, some people ran into a dead end, then they ran outside, dropping their mobile phones and bags, and tried to escape as fast as they could.”

At least 144 people were killed in the attack on March 22, which Islamic State claimed responsibility for.

Artem’s mother, Alexandra Donskova, told Reuters news agency that he and the family were emotionally exhausted. She said he was a shy boy and she was concerned about his mental health.

“Of course I would like him to have at least one session with a psychologist, because I can’t treat my own child. And I would like him to work through this situation,” she said.

“He isn’t agreeing to it at the moment, but maybe I will insist a little bit later.”
