Describing the moment of the attack, Salman Rushdie said he was climbing the stairs to give a speech. At that time, the young man (Hadi Matar, a US citizen of Lebanese origin) attacked him. They kept stabbing him in the neck, stomach and face. 12 stabs in 17 seconds. At one point, he collapsed on the stage. Rushdie said his eyes were bulging out from the stab wounds, like 'a half-boiled egg'.

About the suddenness of the attack, the novelist said, 'I could not fight her (Hadi Matar). I could not run away from him. After the attack, I felt like I was going to die. Fortunately, I was wrong.'
