Three stabs

President Adamowicz received three stabs including one in the heart area. After reanimation at the scene, the paramedics transported him to the University Clinical Center in Gdansk. There was already an operation crew waiting for the President to arrive. Thanks to this, he immediately got into the operation room and the efforts to rescue his life continued.

The operation took five hours. During this time, the doctors transfused some 41 units of blood (approximately 18 liters). The damages were very serious as the knife cut the heart, diaphragm, and the abdomen aorta. This meant that the doctors had to focus on stopping the bleeding and closing the wounds. The doctors said, that each of the wounds could have been fatal.

A special press conference on the current condition of Pawel Adamowicz took place around 12:30 in the University Clinical Center in Gdansk. The doctor said that the President was unconscious and that the situation still requires more time. Specialized machines are supporting his heartbeat and breathing functions.
