Astonishing; Woman cheats death thrice, escapes Barcelona, London Bridge, Paris attacks

An Australian woman caught up in the Barcelona attack has revealed how it was the third time she has cheated death in a terror incident this year.

Twenty-six-year-old Julia Monaco, from Melbourne, was in a shopping centre with pals when the van ploughed through a crowd on Las Ramblas on Thursday.

But she has now told how she was travelling on the tube when it was put on lockdown during the London Bridge attack in June.

And she said she was in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris just days later when a knifeman attacked a police officer in the square outside the famous landmark.

Julia was lucky to escape unharmed after finding herself caught up in terror attacks in three different countries in as many months during her trip around Europe.

But she told an Aussie radio host her experience hasn’t stopped her wanting to see the world.

She told 3AW: “I don’t feel like I want to go home. I feel like I want to stay here and not let them – whoever they may be – win. I’m going to see what I came here to see.”

Julia was in Urban Outfitters with pals Julia Rocca and Alana Reader on Placa de Catalunya when the incident unfolded yesterday.

Speaking to another Australian media outlet, she told of the mass panic in the moments after the terrifying attack began.

She told 9news: “”In a split second, it became absolute pandemonium.”

Julia said they didn’t see the van, but witnessed people screaming and running for their lives in the immediate aftermath.

She said: “People were literally pushing to get into the store off the street … we were genuinely terrified.

“It was genuinely like they were running for their lives, it was genuine fear you could see, more than just panic.”
