The Sacramento State student who helped thwart a terrorist attack on a French train is making appearances on the national media circuit this week. Anthony Sadler -a senior at California State University, Sacramento- spoke with late night host Jimmy Fallon Tuesday and NBC Nightly News Host Lester Holt Wednesday. We’re airing highlights from those interviews where Sadler explains what happened on the train.

Sadler was touring Europe with friends Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos when a heavily armed gunman burst into their train car. Sadler and his friends quickly subdued the attacker, preventing many possible casualties.
