The hero bystanders who subdued the London Bridge knife attacker included a chef who fought off the jihadist with an ornamental 5-foot narwhal tusk and another who brandished a fire extinguisher.
British media identified the chef as Lukasz, a man from Poland, who was injured by the assailant, convicted terrorist Usman Khan. Two were killed and three were injured in the attack before Khan was shot dead by police.
Following the attack, the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack but didn’t provide any evidence, The Associated Press reported.
