New reports reveal that the man who was hurt while trying to help Finland attack victims says he is not a hero. The British man, Hassan Zubier who was injured while assisting victims of a suspected terror attack in Finland has said: “I am not a hero,” when he was addressed as such.
The attack occurred in the city of Turku, which is about 90 miles west of the country’s capital, Helsinki. It left two Finnish women murdered and seven others injured, including Hassan Zubier, in the knife rampage.
It is reported by The Guardian that a Sweden newspaper Expressen reveals that Zubier is a Kent-born paramedic who is now living in Sweden. The report also stated that the paramedic was stabbed while he was trying to save other people from the terror attack, including a woman who reportedly died in his arms.
“I am not a hero. I did what I was trained for. I did my best and more,” Zubier told the BBC. This is amazing as many would have jumped on the idea of being addressed as a hero. Meanwhile, it is reported that a Foreign Office spokesperson stated that “Our staff has offered support to a British man following an incident in Finland.”
Reports have that the attack which was described as “a likely terror act” by Finland’s security intelligence service also left an Italian, a Swede and Four Finns badly injured. Meanwhile, the police said the suspected attacker is an 18-year-old Moroccan man who appeared to have targeted only women. The police department added he was shot and arrested by police officers. Four other Moroccans that are suspected to be involved in the attack have also been arrested.
