This is pretty shocking — we’re just glad there were no deaths!
A train station in Dusseldorf, Germany was rocked by a violent ax attack on Thursday.
Local witnesses say a man came off of a commuter train and just started swinging. Eventually he was injured and arrested by police. No motive is known; the station has been closed for investigation.
According to local news reports, none of the victims are likely to die from their injuries, though one was somewhat serious.
In case you were wondering why the weapon was an ax, Germany began requiring psychiatric evaluations before gun ownership after a mass shooting in 2002. Just one of a number of common sense laws that we can’t seem to enact in the States.
