Nice, France (WMC/CNN) -

In the moments that shock us and terrify us the most, we are also often amazed by strength, compassion and heroism. That is certainly the case in Nice, France where dozens are dead after an attack on a holiday celebration. A man, armed with a 20 ton truck drove through the crowd leaving death behind.

But heroes also jumped into action, trying to stop or at least slow down the carnage. One of those people in the case of the Nice attack, a biker. A video of the attack has been seen around the world. But if you take a closer look you see the moment that biker took heroic action. 

A motorcycle speeds alongside the truck. The biker dumps the motorcycle, jumps on the running board of the truck and desperately tries to get to the driver in the cab. The biker was not the only person to jump in to try and stop the attack. But he may have given his life trying. Some report that he was crushed by the truck. It's also unclear if the rider was a citizen or law enforcement. Either way, the rider deserves praise for his actions.
