Recently released surveillance video shows the terrifying moment a would-be suicide bomber attempted to bring death and destruction to New York City on Monday morning; depicting the ISIS-inspired terrorist calmly walking amongst commuters when he suddenly detonates his improvised explosive.

The chilling images, released by the New York Post, show 27-year old Akayed Ullah –a Brooklyn resident born in Bangladesh- slowly stalking the halls of the New York City subway system beneath the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

After several seconds, Ullah detonates a five-inch long pipe-bomb strapped to his midsection as residents and tourists flee the explosion.

The bomber was seriously injured and was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment. At least four other individuals were harmed in the attack, but are not in serious condition.
