A tearful Geraldo Rivera broke down on Friday over his daughter Simone, who was one of the thousands watching a soccer match in Paris when several bombs detonated as part of coordinated attacks across Paris.
"I just thank God she wasn't at the rock concert but was at the soccer stadium," an emotional Rivera told Shepard Smith on Fox News.
"We don't want her to travel, we don't want her to do anything, just lock her down until they sort this out," Rivera said.
Rivera lost his composure when he showed a picture of him and his daughter together.
"Here's my gorgeous daughter," he cried. "It's a lot easier to report these things than to experience them myself," he continued, describing his 21-year-old daughter as a wonderful person with a "gentle soul."
"We're obviously very concerned," he said. Geraldo also spoke to Simone on Fox News, who recounted the horrific sequence of events at the soccer stadium.
"I'm shaking still," she said, describing the chaos at the game when bombs went off and being stranded afterward as all transportation shut down.
"Do you want to come home hunny?" an emotional Rivera asked his daughter. "I do, I want to come home," she answered.
And early Saturday morning, Rivera took to Twitter to call on President Obama to go to war against ISIS.
