‘I put my hand on [his wound], sat him down and told him what my mother taught me, breathing techniques.’

He added that the attacker looked ‘crazy and frazzled’. The alleged attacker then hijacked a red taxi and fled the scene at around 3.10pm, local time.

However, there are now reports of a body being seen in the street near a primary school in the Arncliffe area of the city – two miles from the original incidents in Rockdale.

Pictures show a body being covered in a white sheet, however police have not confirmed any deaths.
