"We managed to get her into the auto of one of the people who was helping and got her to the hospital, she was critical", he told RNZ.

"Then this brother came over".

A mosque shooting survivor in New Zealand has been hailed as a hero for preventing more deaths after confronting the shooter by yelling "Come here!" and leading him on a chase that ended with the shooter speeding away in his auto.

People place flowers at a memorial as a tribute to victims of the mosque attacks, near Linwood mosque in Christchurch. "Otherwise, if he managed to come into the mosque, then we would all probably be gone".

According to details, an Afghan national, Abdul Aziz ran after the terrorist, who was rampaging through two mosques of Christchurch city, with an empty gun and managed to stop the assailant from pulling out more weapons from his vehicle and forcing him to flee from the scene of the incident.

There were tales of heroism at the Linwood mosque too, where Syed Mazharuddin said a man wrestled a weapon off the attacker, who cut short his killing spree and ran to a waiting vehicle.

He said he could hear his two youngest sons, aged 11 and 5, urging him to come back inside.

The gunman returned and fired.

The gunman fired back but Aziz was able to dodge him by weaving through parked cars, which prevented the gunman from having a clear aim. Then Aziz spotted a gun the gunman had abandoned and picked it up, pointed it and squeezed the trigger.

So Lateef's unnamed fellow worshipper seized the initiative and grabbed the rifle, following the attacker to his auto and using it to smash the vehicle's back window before running away.

"He gets into his auto and I just got the gun and threw it on his window like an arrow and blasted his window", he said.

The windshield shattered: "That's why he got scared".

Suspect Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, has appeared in court charged with one murder over the shootings.

The pair's actions may have saved further casualties, as Tarrant was apprehended by two armed police officers not far from Linwood mosque soon afterwards while driving his auto with a visibly smashed back window.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, speaking from parliament on Saturday, says she is committed to changing the country's gun laws after 49 people died in a terror attack in Christchurch.

Mr Aziz said he did not feel fear or much of anything when facing the gunman - it was like he was on autopilot. And he believes that God, that Allah, didn't think it was his time to die.
