Daily Mail: Death of a suicide bomber: Moment hero cop moves in to finish ISIS terrorist - before fleeing for his life - in Brussels-style attack by three men on Istanbul airport that left up to 50 dead and 147 injured

* Three explosions rocked Istanbul's Ataturk airport in what officials say was a suicide attack shortly before 8pm GMT
* Eyewitness saw a police officer wrestle attacker to the ground just moments before the blast shook the terminal
* A total of 36 people are confirmed dead, however this total is expected to rise to 50 according to Turkish officials
* Reports claimed that ISIS is to blame for the attack, according to Turkish news agencies citing police sources

Three suicide bombers have launched a 'major, co-ordinated' attack at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport, spraying bullets into crowds of terrified passengers and security personnel before blowing themselves up, injuring more than 140 people and leaving a death toll expected to rise to 50.

Eyewitnesses described the moment a hero policeman shot down one of the suicide bombers before he was able to detonate his explosives, giving holidaymakers a chance to escape and saving countless lives.

In shocking footage that captured the moment, the gunman can be seen running through the international arrivals terminal before falling to the ground - apparently felled by a police bullet - and sending his AK-47 skidding across the floor.

The police officer then approaches the gunman before realising he is about to detonate his suicide vest and running for his life.
Moments later, as the gunman writhes in pain on the floor, he detonates his bomb and the screen goes blank.
