Two of the three American heroes who stopped an armed Islamic terrorist aboard a Paris-bound train were reunited sooner than they expected after one of them ended up in the hospital— for the second time.

Army National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos went to visit U.S. Airman Spencer Stone over the weekend after Stone was stabbed several times last week in a separate, unrelated incident in Sacramento, California.

In the hospital since Thursday, Stone is recovering from three stab wounds he received during a fight outside a bar earlier that day. According to a witness, Stone came to the defense of a woman who was struck by an unidentified man who appeared to be her boyfriend.

His hero status intact, this is one tough kid. But the mysterious damsel in distress ended up leaving with a group that included the man who hit her, so Stone’s rescue was for naught.

Police say the group likely had no idea who Stone was and are still searching for the man who stabbed him.

Skarlatos, traveling from Los Angeles, where he is practicing for the popular TV show “Dancing With the Stars,” posted a photo on Instagram of the visit at UC Davis Medical Center.

Appropriately, he included the caption: “Saw the hero today.”
