Excerpt from article-
“Lukasz used the 1.5 metre-long narwhal tusk to “charge towards the bad guy,” according to Williamson. He hit Khan in the chest with the stick before telling members of the public to get away.
A spokesperson for Poland’s minister of justice, Zbigniew Ziobro, posted on Twitter that he would ask Polish President Andrzej Duda to award Lukasz with the Medal for Sacrifice and Courage for “risking his own life” to help overpower the attacker. The medal is awarded to someone who puts themselves at risk to save other people’s lives.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki posted on Facebook that the country is proud of Lukasz.
“Against terrorism, any weapon is allowed,” he posted. “Mr. Luke, your attitude deserves a special thank you and respect.”
