Ahmed Sharif, the New York City cab driver stabbed after allegedly being asked if he was Muslim, described the violent attack to local TV news reporters, saying he pleaded with his attacker not to kill him.
"I saw the knife coming through my neck right here," Sharif told FOX, showing his wounds. "Once I see his face, is so much anger and mad at me, I don't know, and hate. He have to kill me. And I ask him, 'Please don't kill me, why you have to kill me, what I did?'"
"Then again he hit me, then I'm trying to fighting for life, protect myself, but still he cursing and yelling," Sharif added.
Sharif will meet with Mayor Michael Bloomberg at City Hall later today.
