"People were begging for our help. We made a call to take a father and his daughter who was in a bad way into a car and we managed to get them both out quickly but we don't know if they survived ... The gentleman my co-worker was helping died in his arms after about 30 minutes. It was a scene of carnage."Read more: 'I wish I could've done more': A woman describes what it was like trying to help the victims of the New Zealand mosque shootingPomare and his colleagues were on the scene for about an hour and a half assisting those who were injured.
