The opposition party leader in Bulgaria survived what appears to be a very close assassination attempt. He was onstage at a caucus event when a man ran up and pointed a gas pistol at his head. The gun didn't go off, leaving seconds for the politician to react. He pushed the man’s arm out of the way and hit the ground.

The would-be gunman had nowhere to run. He was immediately

tackled to the ground and repeatedly kicked by other delegates until he was escorted out with a bloodied face.

The whole incident was captured on camera. Check it out below!
