people. it's beyond my comprehension to understand how anybody could do that. >> reporter: as images of the attack took over media outlets, dan says he saw a video clip of a man that looked like jared. he was wearing a blue shirt, tan pants, and had blonde hair. >> but there was a person kneeling with him. so we were encouraged to feel that if it was an injury as opposed to anything serious, but he wasn't moving. and, um, so we held on to that this morning. we got a text from heidi. and it indicated that the conversation with the officials had more to do with identification than it did with health or possibly an injury. >> reporter: today, dan is just
