It's not trending on Facebook, so I'm not sure how many people realize that 3 Americans, with the help of a British citizen tackled a Moroccan on a French train from Amsterdam to Paris on Friday afternoon. The Americans, Air Force Airman Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guard member Alex Skarlatos, on leave from Afghanistan, along with Californian Anthony Sadler and British national Chris Norman subdued Ayoub el-Qahzzani after he emerged from a bathroom on the train shooting a AK-47.

Three people, including Stone were injured in the attack, but they prevented many deaths, as they subdued el-Qahzzani and beat him unconscious. Stone, who was sliced with a box cutter numerous times was released from the hospital Saturday.

Here the heroes describe subduing el-Qahzzani
