Chris Wood
After a couple of scheduled meetings were canceled, TLC marketing specialist Chris Wood decided to eat lunch outside. When he walked back into the Discovery Communications headquarters, he noticed the lobby seemed especially calm.

Once inside the building, Chris says he saw Jim's bag on the floor. "Because we work so closely together, I knew it was Jim's bag," he says. He saw Jim lying on the floor and was confused as to why no one was helping him. "Then I looked up to the left as I was coming in the second door and the gunman was wielding the gun at me and saying: 'Get on the floor! Get on the floor!'"

Chris says he went directly to the ground, holding his phone and iPod in his right hand. He says he could see both Lee and Jim from his place on the floor. "I'm just starting to think: 'What is going on? Why here?'" he says.
