Geraldo breaks down on-air finding out daughter was in Paris stadium; his emotional message to POTUS

A visibly shaken Geraldo Rivera lived every parent’s worst nightmare live on the air as the Paris terrorist attacks unfolded.

As Fox News’ Shepard Smith was reporting on the terror attacks Rivera explained that his daughter Simone was at the stadium where explosions were heard as the attacks began.

“She was at the soccer game with her best friend,” he said. “My daughter Simone told me she heard the three explosions near halftime.”

He described the chaotic scene his daughter witnessed.

“People ran one way, my daughter Simone and her friend, there were four of them in the party, started going in the other and then the saw the crowd, another crowd, pouring from another exit,” he said. “It was chaos.”

His daughter appeared later in the night to describe her harrowing experience.

Geraldo also tweeted to let everyone know his daughter was safe and to call out President Obama to start taking the lead in the war against the Islamic State.
