Video: Surveillance footage of French train hero Spencer Stone's stabbing described
Spencer Stone, who helped stopped a terrorist attack two months ago in France, remained in fair condition Saturday at UC Davis Medical Center as he continued to recover from a stabbing in midtown Sacramento this week.
A spokesman for the hospital said the U.S. Air Force airman’s condition was unchanged from Friday after undergoing surgery for three stab wounds he received during an altercation early Thursday in the intersection of 21st and K streets.
Sacramento police said they had no new developments to report in the case.
Stone made international headlines when he, Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler, boyhood friends from Sacramento, tackled and subdued a would-be terrorist on a Paris-bound train. Skarlatos visited Stone in the hospital on Saturday and posted a photo of the meeting on Instagram.
The subsequent stabbing of the Sacramento hero has upset many and led to a fundraising effort to raise money to help police in its investigation of the case. The Midtown Business Association started the effort Friday with a promise to match contributions up to $3,500.
As of Saturday night, the drive had received seven donations totaling $1,425, with the association contributing $1,000 of that money. The fundraising site is at www.gofundme.com/MidtownSac.
