Age: 42

Swedish mathematics teacher at the Kronan School in Trollhattan, Sweden who had remained hospitalized in critical condition for six weeks from serious injuries he received during the fatal October 22, 2015 stabbing attack perpetrated by 21-year-old Anton Lundin Pettersson with a sword after killing 20-year-old teaching assistant Lavin Eskandar and 15-year-old student Ahmed Hassan at the scene and also wounded another pupil when the rampage occurred in the school's cafe before the perpetrator later died of gunshot wounds he received during his apprehension, in which the incident was the first deadly attack on a school in Swedish history since the 1961 Kungalv school shooting when one person was killed and six others were injured, but the initial police investigation concluded that the masked sword-wielding assailant was motivated by racism and had chosen the school as his target due to its location in a neighborhood with a high immigration population.
