NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man who walked into a Queens McDonald’s on Tuesday with a knife sticking out of his back says he’s grateful the stabbing didn’t cut his life short.
“I didn’t get lucky. I’m blessed,” Andrew Hardy told CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider through the door of his home Wednesday.
“It didn’t hit anything, fortunately,” Hardy said. “It probably hit my shoulder blade, and that probably was the extent of it. And the blade went sort of upwards, so it looked like it was deeper than it actually was.”
Hardy said he was stabbed during a fight at the corner of Archer Avenue and Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. He claims someone lunged at him, he punched back, and then someone plunged the knife into him.
