A Kansas City man is being hailed as a hero for confronting an agitated, knife-wielding passenger on a local bus. He ended up stabbed once in the process, but is recovering from his injury.
One moment Daron Clay was listening to music. The next, he was fending off an armed man.
“I seen him pull the knife out of his pocket, I was just like I have to fight for my life,” Clay told KSHB.
Clay was also worried about the mother and her two children across from them.
“I didn’t want her to get hurt. I didn’t want the kids to get hurt. I knew that I was going to get stabbed, but you know I just had to fight for my life,” he said.
The 21-year-old pushed the knife-wielding man toward the front of the bus. As the driver slammed the brakes, the suspect goes right thru the windshield. You can see the knife in the suspect’s right hand. He ends up using it to stab Clay once before the driver opens the doors.
He probably would have fared better had he grabbed a backpack or other improvised defensive item, but all in all, Good for Mr. Clay. A truly altruistic act by a brave man. Kudos to you sir.
