Howard Lewis was a tourist visiting Salamanca, Spain when he witnessed some suspicious activity during the assassination attempt on President Henry Ashton during an international treaty.
American tourist Howard Lewis is first seen filming the turnout at the summit. Lewis chats with a man called Sam, while a little girl named Anna, bumps into him and drops her ice cream. Later, Lewis notices Barnes looking at the curtain fluttering in the window of a nearby building, and captures the footage with his camcorder. Following the second explosion at the podium, Lewis chases Enrique and the pursuing Secret Service agents. At the overpass, Lewis views the pair of agents from afar shooting in the direction of Enrique as he greets an individual in a police uniform under the overpass. Seriously wounded, Enrique falls to the ground. Lewis sees Anna who had earlier become separated from her mother, trying to cross a busy intersection. An ambulance races down the road about to hit Anna, as Lewis runs out to save her. Lewis pulls Anna out of its way just in time. He then calls his family and tells them that he will be coming home.
