Megyn Kelly sat down with three American heroes who foiled a would-be terrorist on a high-speed train in France.

Back in August, U.S. Airman Spencer Stone, National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and Sacramento State University student Anthony Sadler suddenly found themselves in the spotlight when they tackled a gunman aboard a train in Europe, saving lives and becoming worldwide heroes.

The three friends said they’re men of faith who “absolutely” believe that God has a hand in their lives.

Stone said that they believe God protected them that day. Skarlatos agreed, remarking that there were “too many coincidences.”

Kelly asked them about the comparison between what they did and the actions of the heroes of Flight 93 on September 11, 2001.

The boyhood friends said they now have a new appreciation for victims of terror attacks. 

Sadler said he just visited New York and the 9/11 Memorial for the first time. 

"This was maybe less than a week after our ordeal happened and it just gave me a whole new perspective. I was just like, appreciative of the names, just like, on the stones out there, because that could have easily been us. Just as easy," he said.
