STORY: Victims of a stabbing attack which resulted in the deaths of 33 people, including four assailants, and injured over 130 in southwest China said on Sunday (March 2) they were lucky to be alive. Patients with minor injuries were laid out on beds in the corridor of the Kunming Number One Hospital, a major hosptial in Kunming city, Yunnan province, where the attack took place on Saturday (March 1) night. Twenty-three-year-old student Wang Hongli lay in bed with a her head shaved and a bandage held to the back of her scalp with gauze. She was slashed once in the back of the head, but did not sustain serious damage. Wang said she did not see her attacker's face, but that he was tall, thin and wearing a white shirt. Nearby, Kunming residents gave blood at a mobile blood bank in a busy city square. The bank normally receives 20 to 30 donations on a given Sunday, but the manager said they had received 100 pouches already by mid-afternoon local time. They were extending their usual closing time of 8pm (1200 GMT) to accommodate the crowd outside the unit.
