The attacker was identified as 50-year-old Li Xiaomin. In a press release, the Wangfu Town government said three people — the school's principal, another security guard, and one student — suffered grave injuries.
At least eight ambulances were sent to the spot. Visuals showed one student being carried by adults, and some were being treated with a drip.
Another parent said many of the injured were students of pre-school, some were as young as six. A clip by Xiaoxiang Morning News showed doctors and nurses treating at least ten students. They had bandages on their head and bodies and were helped by others.
