SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, hailed as a hero for helping to tackle a gunman on a French train in August, was stabbed and seriously wounded outside a bar early Thursday in what police said was an alcohol-related fight that had nothing to do with terrorism.
One of three Americans who recently helped thwart a terror attack on a Paris-bound train was stabbed in his home state of California -- apparently after coming to a woman's rescue, authorities said Thursday. The US Air Force confirmed that 23-year-old Airman Spencer Stone was stabbed in Sacramento and taken to a local hospital. "He is in stable condition," spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Chris Karns told AFP.
