Alek Skarlatos is a hero and a good friend. The ‘Dancing With The Stars’ contestant paid a visit to his friend and fellow hero, Spencer Stone, who has been holed up in a hospital ever since he was the victim of a stabbing attack on Oct. 8. Alek tried to cheer up his friend, who is still recovering from his traumatic injuries.
Whether facing down a terrorist or visiting him in a hospital, it’s good to know that American hero Alek Skarlatos, 23, always has his friend Spencer Stone‘s, 23, back. On Oct. 10, the DWTS contestant went to the hospital, where the Airman was recovering after a stabbing attack and posted a pic on his Instagram of the two spending time together.
It’s a sobering portrait that shows the two men together. Spencer is still confined to his hospital bed, where he is covered in bandages and even has a breathing tube in his nose. In the snap, Alek has a wide mouthed smile and is clearly trying to cheer his friend up, however, the best Spencer can do is a small, close-mouthed grin, as he still in the middle of recovery from his serious wounds. “Saw the hero today,” Alek captioned the pic. We hope Spencer feels better soon!
A surveillance camera captured the fight that led to Spencer being stabbed. In the video, you can see Spencer, who is reportedly the larger male in a white shirt, take on at least three other guys before more people jumped in. Before the video cuts off, you can start to see his white shirt being stained in the front and back with what we can only assume to be blood. Stone is described as being in fair condition after having been stabbed at least three times. The police are still searching for the men who attacked him. Immediately after the attack, Alek took to his Twitter to ask his followers to pray for Spencer’s family.
Please send your good thoughts and prayers to Spencer in the comments below.
