Air Force airman Spencer Stone was released fro hospital today after being stabbed in the neck and hand yesterday while preventing a terrorist attack. Stone attacked Ayoub el-Qahzzani, a 26 year-old Moroccan who opened fire on a crowded Paris-bound train. Stone’s thumb was nearly severed by the terrorist, who had a Kalashnikov and a knife.
But with the help of two other bystanders, Stone was able to disarm el-Qahzzani and then give first aid to three other passengers who were injured in the attack. The French media has denied that it was a terrorist attack, saying el-Qahzzani was only interested in armed robbery.
