The sister of a British Columbia woman who took on a stabbing suspect with an umbrella says her sibling always does what she believes is right.
Sheloah Klausen, a school teacher in North Vancouver, was at the Lynn Valley public library on Saturday to attend a book fair with her daughter.
Leah Michayluk says when her sister saw a man stab a woman in the library, she ordered her 10-year-old daughter to hide and grabbed a nearby umbrella to intervene.
Klausen has injuries to her neck, head and hands, and Michayluk says a bystander who pressed napkins to the cut artery in her sister's neck likely saved her life.
One woman was killed in the attack and six others were injured.
Twenty-eight-year-old Yannick Bandaogo faces a second-degree murder charge and is due back in court on Thursday.
