People young and old were relaxing on the streets after celebrating France's national holiday. Full of joy from fireworks shows celebrating peace and unity. And then a massive white truck barrels down the main road killing 84 people. Including ten children. Leaving hundreds in hospital. Many fighting for their lives.
