The officer stabbed at the Flint, Michigan airport has been released from the hospital, after enduring what is being investigated as a terrorist attack.
Lt. Jeff Neville was released Monday, according to a spokeswoman from Hurley Medical Center.
Neville suffered a 12-inch wound when he was stabbed with a large knife by 49-year-old Amor Ftouhi, during his security shift at Bishop International Airport in Flint, 50 miles northwest from Detroit.
Ftouhi had words for the police officer, exclaiming: “You have killed people in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and we are all going to die.”
Doctors have said that the knife luckily missed all major nerves, organs, and arteries.
Ftouhi currently remains in custody
