Ingvild Stensrud spoke deliberately and clearly to TODAY Monday about the horrifying events in Norway last Friday that have left a reported 75 dead, describing how she managed to survive after being shot in the leg by playing dead. The 16-year-old was so composed that Ann Curry asked how she managed it after such a horrific ordeal.
Stensrud explained that little of the tragedy has sunk in for her yet. “I don’t understand what I have been witness to, so that’s why I am calm right now,” she told Curry via satellite from Skien, Norway. “I think the feelings will come later.”
Self-described anti-Muslim and multiculturalism foe Anders Behring Brevik was arraigned in Oslo court Monday after Friday’s rampage, which began when a bomb exploded in downtown Oslo, killing seven, and then continued on tiny Utoya Island, where a reported 68 young people attending a camp sponsored by the country’s Labor Party were massacred.
