Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD -

WAR­SAW, Poland — The mayor of a city in Poland was in very se­ri­ous con­di­tion after he was stabbed on stage Sun­day dur­ing the fi­nale of a large char­ity event, and Pol­ish me­dia re­ported de­tails that gave the at­tack a po­lit­i­cal el­e­ment.

Gdansk Mayor Pawel Adamow­icz was at­tacked with a knife while he stood on stage, held his belly and col­lapsed dur­ing the “Lights to Heaven” fundraiser or­ga­nized by the Great Orches­tra of Christ­mas Char­ity, Poland’s most im­por­tant char­ity.

Pol­ish Pres­i­dent An­drzej Duda said he was in­formed that “doc­tors suc­ceeded in re­an­i­mat­ing the heart of the se­ri­ously in­jured Mayor Pawel Adamow­icz and there is hope, but his con­di­tion is very dif­fi­cult.” He called on for peo­ple to pray for the mayor.
