SACRAMENTO, Calif. – After gaining international fame for stopping an alleged terror attack on a Paris-bound train this summer, one American is recovering after being stabbed.
Spencer Stone is a trained medical technician with the United States Air Force.
In August, he and two friends were aboard a train that was headed to France when they heard gunfire.
Stone was the first one who reached the gunman and tackled him to the ground.
Stone, who was suffering from injuries to his head, neck and hand, still managed to help a man who had his throat cut.
Following the attack, Stone and his friends were given the Legion of Honor, France’s highest recognition.
The U.S. Air Force said the attack happened around midnight.
“He is alive and in stable condition at this time,” the Air Force said in a statement. “We do not have any information as to the events preceding the incident.”
Everybody send prayers out to the stone family today
