Alek Skarlatos Asks For Prayers After Fellow Train Hero, Spencer Stone, Is Stabbed

Alek Skarlatos used his time away from Dancing With the Stars to pay a visit to his pal Spencer Stone in the hospital after he was stabbed multiple times last week.

Skarlatos snapped a selfie with Spencer at his bedside on Saturday at UC Davis Medical Center, and captioned the pic: "Saw the hero today." He later took down the image.

The men are two of the three American heroes that helped take down a gunman on a Paris-bound train from Amsterdam in August.

Stone, 23, was stabbed three times during a fight outside a Sacramento nightclub. After undergoing surgery, he is now in fair condition and expected to make a full recovery. Police are still searching for the people connected to the stabbing.

In another Instagram post, Skarlatos wrote: "Send some prayers out the the guy in the middle @spencthang."

The Sacramento Police Department told ET that they received a call from a passerby that a subject had been stabbed, and he was located on scene and transported to an area hospital by fire personnel. It is believed that Stone was out with a group of friends when a physical altercation led to him being stabbed multiple times in his upper body.
