WELSH RHONDDA RESIDENT TO BE AWARDED THE AUSTRALIAN SILVER MEDAL OF SOCIETY
Hostel caretaker Grant Schultz bravely tried to stop Ayad after the fatal attack but he too was stabbed and suffered leg injuries.
Deranged Ayad then lept from the first-floor balcony and sustained neck and back fractures in the fall.
He got up from the fall and stabbed the hostel owner’s dog to death and returned to Mia’s room where he attacked Brit backpacker Tom Jackson.
Mia Ayliffe-Chung was a backpacker living her “dream” who was stabbed to death when Ayad went on a rampage at a hostel in Australia in 2016
The 20-year-old had been working as a bartender for the past six months, was knifed in a frenzied attack in front of 30 horrified witnesses, one being Welshman Daniel who tried to save the poor girls life.
Local residents in the Valleys have said how the award is well deserved especially in consideration of the bravery of Daniel:
” It was a very courageous act, Daniel put his life on the line for trying to save another, many would have fled the scene – he should be very proud of his award, it’s fully deserved,” said Valley’s resident Henry Thomas.
“He’s a lovely lad in the town, and he’s had to live with the horror of what happened 4 years ago and hopefully this award will bring him extreme pride after all that happened” he finished.
