Stabbed teen dies in Sydney train station brawl

Remember the good old days when people just caught trains at train stations? They didn't feel the need to kill each other.

A 22 year-old man is in serious condition under police guard in hospital after a teenager was stabbed to death at a Sydney train station last night.

Police were called to Bankstown train station about 6.50pm yesterday, after reports of a brawl between a group of men on a platform.

A knife was produced during the fight, which involved three males, aged 16, 22, and 15, police said. At this stage it is not clear who had the knife.

The 16-year-old was stabbed during the altercation. He was given CPR by paramedics but died at the station, police said.

The 22-year-old man sustained stab wounds to his head and body and was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

The 15-year-old boy suffered a knife wound to his leg. He is also in hospital.

The Bankstown train line was closed last night for safety reasons while police investigated the incident.

Newswarped would like to see a zero tolerance apporach to people found carrying knives without good reason. Knife crime has been rampant in the UK for a few years now. It needs to be stamped out in Australia before it takes hold.
