Maddison Wrixon, stabbed 13 times by crazed knifeman on holiday island as she tries to save murdered boyfriend - 14th July 2011

A British teenager was stabbed 13 times and saw her boyfriend murdered in a bloodbath on a holiday island.

Maddison Wrixon, 18, tried to fight off a crazed knifeman who tied up Cristian Santana Guerra, 21, then stabbed him to death.

Brit Miss Wrixon, who lives on the Canary island of Fuerteventura, was rushed to hospital where she underwent emergency surgery which saved her life.

Police said she was expected to pull through.

The alleged attacker, reportedly a friend of the couple, was arrested hours later by police.

Miss Wrixon is thought to have been dating Mr Guerra, from the neighbouring island of Gran Canary, for just two weeks.

The couple were at Mr Guerra's flat in Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura's capital, when their friend David, 20, arrived yesterday afternoon.

The friend is alleged to have pulled out a knife, threatened Mr Guerra, tied his hands up and stabbed him repeatedly, puncturing vital organs.

Local reports said Miss Wrixon tried to fight of the attacker, who then stabbed her 13 times, causing her to collapse on the floor.

Her boyfriend ran out of the flat, blood pouring from him, in a bid to get help. Read More
