London Hero Fights Off Knife-Wielding Terrorists With Bare Hands, Saving Dozens Of Lives.

No greater love has any man than this, that he would lay his life down for his friends. But Roy Larner showed this love to complete strangers last weekend.

Roy was stabbed over and over on Saturday night as he defended everyone around him from terrorists wielding 12 inch knives. The attackers swept their way through Borough Market in London on Saturday night with a mission to take as many lives as possible, but this father of one stopped them in their tracks.

Larner reportedly threw bar stools, pint glasses and his fists at multiple attackers in an effort not to defend himself, but everyone else around him so they could escape. It was a selfless act of courage that has thankfully not gone unnoticed.

His friends said he suffered knife wounds all over his body, including his head, neck, back and fingers, all for the sake of defending others.

“He didn’t consider the consequences and harm that may face his own life, but did what he could to save someone’s life; now only to be fighting for his own.â€


In the face of extreme danger, Larner decided to sacrifice his own safety so that others might live. Because of this, he has been nominated for George Cross award for bravery.

Whether or not he receives it, all of us can agree – Larner is a true hero.

Share and honor his bravery.
