American Train Attack Hero Stabbed, Miracle He's Alive

On Thursday, French train attack hero Spencer Stone was stabbed "four times in the chest" trying to protect a friend while out in Sacramento.

This past August, the 23-year-old U.S. airman 1st class was one of three Americans who managed to take down a gunman as he opened fire on a Paris train this past August. According to CBS News, he suffered a wound to the heart and lung. He was also taken to the UC Davis Medical Center for treatment.

The stabbing occurred at 12:45 a.m. at the intersection of 21st and K. The crime was so violent that two blocks of the street were shut down.

Police said in a statement "It is believed that the victim was out with a group of friends when a physical altercation led to the victim being stabbed multiple times in his upper body."

Police did not believe Stone would survive his injuries. Police believe alcohol was a factor. A man and woman were questioned after the attack. Stone was trying to protect his female friend.
