Stabbed man saved by staff and punters in Bow pub

A man was given life-saving treatment by staff and punters at a Bow pub on Friday night after he was stabbed in a nearby street.

The 20-year-old, who is currently in a critical condition, ran into the Lord Cardigan in Anglo Road at around 6.40pm.

One woman who was in the pub at the time told of how a regular customer, thought to be a trainee doctor, rushed to his aid along with other members of the public and staff members.

The woman, who did not want to be named, said: “The man ran into the pub for help. There were quite a few people in there and they stemmed the flow of bleeding. The police said if it wasn’t for him running into the pub he might not have survived.”

He is thought to have been stabbed multiple times.
