Queen praises Polish hero chef who tackled terrorist with a narwhal tusk

November 30, 2019

Media hailed the Polish-born man a hero for trying to pin down Usman Khan, the knifeman who killed two people at London Bridge. Khan, 28, wore a fake suicide vest and started stabbing people with a knife on Friday’s early afternoon.

Polish chef Lukasz, after hearing the screams and the attack, grabbed a narwhal tusk from the Fishmonger’s Hall and charged the terrorist together with other bystanders. The other members of the public attacked Khan with a fire extinguisher.

Lukasz’s colleague, who asked not to be named, told The Times: “[Lukasz] grabbed a nearby pole and ran at him, getting stabbed in the hand in the process but continued to pin him down.

‘Being stabbed didn’t stop him giving him a beating. [Lukasz] is a hero.”

The Queen praised the ‘brave individuals who put their own lives at risk to selflessly help and protect others’ during yesterday’s attack.
