Greyhound Bus Victim Tim McLean "Died a Hero," says Fellow Passenger
One of Greyhound Bus victim Tim McLean's fellow passengers, Stephen Allison, 19, has told how Tim Mclean bravely fought back and thus gave his 35 fellow passengers the chance to alert the driver and leave the bus. Mr. Allison ran to the front of the bus when he saw Tim McLean fighting back to tell the driver to "pull over".
The final actions of a young man stabbed and decapitated on a Greyhound bus in Manitoba are being credited with saving the lives of fellow passengers.
Stephen Allison, 19, was sitting across the aisle from Vincent Weiguang Li when he allegedly attacked Tim McLean near Portage la Prairie on July 30. Allison called McLean a hero.
"If it wasn't for what he did, there would have been more that didn't get off that bus," said Allison, who is from Fort Smith, N. W. T.
He said McLean tried to get away from the suspect and attempted to fight him off after receiving at least two devastating stab wounds.
"When Tim fought back, he gave us all time to get off the bus," Allison said.
