Stabbing Spree Shocks US Educators in China – Exclusive Details Revealed!

Hong Kong – Four American college instructors, working in China, were attacked and stabbed while visiting a public park, marking a rare instance of violence against foreigners in the tightly controlled security state. The educators, affiliated with Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, were participating in a partnership program with Beihua University in Jilin, northeastern China, when the incident occurred.

Cornell College President Jonathan Brand confirmed the attack, stating that all four instructors had been contacted and were receiving assistance. Footage of the aftermath showed the victims covered in blood stains but conscious and speaking on their phones. The motive and identities of the perpetrators remained unclear, with Chinese authorities yet to address the incident.

The attack, geolocated to Beishan Park in Jilin, occurred on a public holiday in China. One of the victims was identified as David Zabner, brother of Iowa state representative Adam Zabner, who reassured that David was recovering well. The remaining victims also survived, although their health status was unknown.

Reports of the attack have drawn concern from US officials, with Gov. Kim Reynolds labeling it as a “horrifying attack.” The incident comes at a time when China is striving to increase international visitors post-Covid-19 restrictions and enhance educational exchanges with the United States to stabilize their strained relationship.

In recent years, China has faced several stabbing incidents in public places, highlighting the importance of gun control in the country. Despite having low rates of violent crime, mass stabbings remain a concern. The Chinese government has reiterated its commitment to strengthening exchanges and cooperation with the US, emphasizing the significance of educational collaboration between the two nations.

The incident involving the American instructors underscores the need for continued vigilance and security measures, both in China and globally. As investigations into the attack continue, the focus remains on ensuring the safety and well-being of all individuals involved in educational programs and exchanges between nations.
