“A car drove Adamowicz’s corpse slowly through the Baltic coast city from the museum of the Solidarity movement that helped to bring down communism in Poland 30 years ago. From there, it passed schools, monuments and other places significant in 53-year-old Adamowicz’s life, en route to the city’s main church, St Mary’s Basilica, for burial on Saturday,” the news agency reads.
As it was reported, an unknown person went on a stage where Gdansk Mayor was standing during a charity concert, stabbed him and started running. The attacker was screaming that he was imprisoned for a crime he never committed. Security detained the criminal and took him to the police station. It was a 27-year-old local resident. Doctors started reanimating the Mayor on the stage, then took him to the hospital and managed to restore heart beating.
Pawel Adamowicz died on January 14. He was 53 years old.
