Gregory Hicks, who was in Benghazi at the time of the September 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate, recounted the events of the day during Capitol Hill testimony Wednesday.

The day was a “routine day” at the embassy, until an aide ran into his villa in Tripoli as he was watching television, and said, “Greg, Greg, the Consulate is under attack.”

He immediately called Ambassador Stevens – who answered and quickly confirmed that it was true.  In the clip above, he details receiving the "saddest phone call" he’d ever received – the one telling him that Ambassador Stevens had died.
