People are waiting for hours in the streets of Paris to donate blood
After a deadly attack left at least 127 people dead in Paris on Friday, people are lining up in hour-long lines to donate blood to those in need. Currently there are believed to be another 200 injured and 99 are reported critically.
Parisians jumped to action, doing everything from opening their front doors for shelter with the hashtag #PorteOuverte or transporting people for free to safety. Now, locals have been waiting up to 3 hours to donate blood at local hospitals.
In response, Twitter users have documented the acts of kindness, by reporting via social media on the intense lines and overall public outcry of the event.
