A crew member was one of the 129 to lose their lives in the Paris attacks.

Instagram footage recorded in the Bataclan theatre on Friday night shows the moment that gunmen began shooting on the crowd attending an Eagles of Death metal concert at the Paris venue.

The attack on the Bataclan theatre was responsible for the majority of the 129 lives lost in the tragic events of Friday night, with 80 people killed after gunmen stormed the venue and opened fire before it was later secured by police.

Instagram footage recorded by seb_snow shows the terrifying moment that the first shots rang out at the venue, as band members immediately sought to protect themselves from the impending attack.

All members of the band were reported safe afterwards but merchandise manager Nick Alexander sadly lost his life in the attacks.
