An usual commute to work turned into a living nightmare
A scary (and very sad) event took place in February 2011 in a NYC subway train. A man named Joe Lozito, was on his way to work when he was suddenly attacked and stabbed by a complete stranger! He revels the entire story in the New York Subway Hero Book.
The astonishing part of this event is that during the stabbing attack, two police officers were standing nearby (behind the next train’s door). Surprisingly, they watched the entire attack going on and not intervening to help the victim!
That is incredibly surprising and shocking, but true, unfortunately.
Take a look at the story from the victim himself; Joe Lozito:
The positive part of this terrible event is that Joe Lozito managed to stop a spree killer by the name of Maksim Gelman. This criminal, was on a stabbing spree killing and injuring many other people prior to this event.
Thanks to Joe Lozito’s instincts and self defense principles he had learned through watching mixed martial arts videos, he managed to defend himself long enough to make his opponent drop the knife and have personnel come and arrest him.
In a city of 8 million stories, this is one of them…
This brutal event which happened in NYC, is a huge eye-opening event, that we can all learn from.
It’s a great book for anyone wanting to see just how important self defense skills can be in the real world. Because in the end, no one is going to look out for you better than yourself.
Lozito’s story proves that even if the police are there to protect you, that doesn’t mean they always will come to your aid.
Having said this, it’s best if you learn how to defend yourself if you are ever in a situation similar to Joe Lozito’s.
