Teaching London Attacks: Everyday heroes stopped terrorist with narwhal tusk

London Attacks: Everyday heroes stopped terrorist with narwhal tusk

On Friday, a 28-year-old man carrying a knife attacked people in London. He was attending a criminal justice conference at Fishmongers’ Hall on London Bridge when he began stabbing people with two large knives. When he began the attack, fellow conference attendees and passersby sprang into action to stop him. One man grabbed a 5-foot-long narwhal tusk off the wall and another man picked up a nearby fire extinguisher.
