Doc­tors fight to save stabbed mayor

China Daily - - WORLD -

A con­victed crim­i­nal with a knife rushed on to the stage dur­ing the fi­nale of a char­ity event on Sun­day night and stabbed a Pol­ish mayor in the heart and ab­domen be­fore shout­ing that he did it for po­lit­i­cal re­venge, in an at­tack that left doc­tors fight­ing to save the politi­cian’s life. Gdansk Mayor Pawel Adamow­icz grabbed his belly and col­lapsed in front of the au­di­ence at the “Lights to Heaven” fundraiser or­ga­nized by the Great Orches­tra of Christ­mas Char­ity, the coun­try’s most im­por­tant char­ity. Doc­tors re­sus­ci­tated Adamow­icz on the spot and then trans­ported him to Med­i­cal Univer­sity of Gdansk, where he un­der­went five hours of surgery.
