French train attack hero Spencer Stone stabbed

Just a few months ago, U.S. Airman Spencer Stone, 25, became a hero after he and two other men successfully thwarted a terror attack on a French train. But last night, Stone himself became a victim of an attack. Stone was "repeatedly stabbed" in Sacramento, California, late Wednesday night, CBS News reports. Local Sacramento news station KCRA reports that "a fight in the street allegedly led to Stone being stabbed multiple times in the torso." He is currently in critical condition and is expected to live.

Stone had returned to Sacramento after his trip last week to Umpqua Community College, where a shooting killed nine. His efforts tackling the armed terror suspect on the Paris-bound train in August earned him an Airman's Medal and a Purple Heart, as well as a meeting at the White House with President Obama.
