France train hero Spencer Stone stabbed in California
A U.S. airman who was injured while helping thwart an attack on a train bound for Paris two months ago has been stabbed in northern California, a U.S. defense official speaking on condition of anonymity said Thursday, the CNN reports.
Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone suffered multiple stab wounds after an incident at a bar near Travis Air Force Base, where he is stationed, the official said.
Stone is being treated for his latest injuries at a hospital and is in stable condition, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said Thursday.
Further details about the stabbing weren’t immediately available.
Stone was one of five men who officials say stopped a gunman from attacking passengers of a Amsterdam-to-Paris train in August.
He also tended to one of his fellow heroes, Armenian-American Mark Moogalian. The latter was shot while confronting the gunman, and Stone, after the gunman was subdued, was credited with helping stop Moogalian’s bleeding.
All five were feted. Stone, Moogalian and the other three — Briton Chirs Norman and Stone’s two American friends, Anthony Sadler and Army National Guard Spc. Alek Skarlatos — received France’s highest recognition, the Legion of Honor.
