Men Fight Off Knife-Wielding Terrorist With Fire Extinguisher And Narwhal Tusk Because 2019 Is Wild

In London’s Fishmongers’ Hall, an attacker wielding a knife began stabbing bystanders on Friday, killing two people and injuring three more. The attacker appeared to be wearing a “suicide vest,” though Neil Basu, the head of UK counter-terrorism policing, later stated that it was fake. Despite the obvious danger, bystanders fought the man off.

One of the brave fighters used a five-foot narwhal tusk they supposedly grabbed off the wall, stunning people on social media.

The Mirror reports that the man with the tusk has not been identified, but he took the tusk from the wall inside the Grade II-listed building, close to London Bridge, where the suspect was stopped and eventually shot by police.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick would not confirm whether or not police were aware of the suspect as a potential threat, but told reporters, “We will be working as fast as we can to understand who this man is, where he comes from and whether there is anyone else who we need to find quickly who might be in touch with him.”

Some people on social media have said the man with tusk was a Polish immigrant, and have used the incident as a way to discuss gun violence in the U.S. and the Brexit push against immigration.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson thanked the bystanders who fought off and disarmed the attacker “for their immense bravery” and called for a meeting of the Government’s emergency committee Cobra on Friday. General Election campaigning events were cancelled for Saturday.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan also thanked the fighters for their “breathtaking heroism,” and help.

Right now they’re all of London’s heroes.
