“We're leaving LA now, our cab's downstairs to go to the airport.”

Liberty continued:  “Obviously it was a scary incident that happened Thursday but we didn't want it to affect the rest of our holiday so we've just been continuing on as normal and living our best lives.

“Obviously it's horrible that, that happened but we're all OK and that is the main thing, that we're safe.”
