60 Minutes secures exclusive interviews with Aussie Paris attacks survivor

Nine’s current affairs show 60 Minutes has secured the exclusive interview with Australian teenager Emma Parkinson who was one of the survivors of the Bataclan Theatre terror attack in Paris last Friday. It will air this Sunday.
The announcement:

This Sunday, the young Australian woman who survived the Paris terror attacks tells 60 Minutes about her ordeal.

19 year old Emma Parkinson was inside the Bataclan Theatre last Friday the 13th of November, and was shot through the hip during the attack.

60 Minutes Reporter Ross Coulthart has just interviewed Emma in Paris and says “Emma is a remarkably brave young woman, with an amazing spirit. She has endured a terrifying situation, and come through it with a strong message for the people of France and Australia.”

60 Minutes Executive Producer Tom Malone says “Emma wants to make it very clear she’s not profiting from telling her story. Emma wanted to tell her story once, in a personal setting, and then get on with her recovery in private. Moreover Emma will be making a donation to the International Federation of the Red Cross.”

Emma’s interview will broadcast on 60 Minutes this Sunday, November 22 at 8.10pm on Channel Nine.
