Simon Yam (任達華) was stabbed by a knife at an activity in Zhongshan in July 2019. Based on the news source from Chinese media, the criminal was mentally ill and Simon decided to forget the whole matter.
During an opening ceremony of a film in Shanghai on 2nd October, Simon’s finger was covered in bandage and replied he was good when asked about his current condition. He added he was recovering well and would be resuming his work after another month. After a full examination from the specialist in the hospital at Zhongshan, the criminal who attacked Simon was confirmed to suffer from mental disorder. Simon said: “The safety is the most important.” He emphasised everyone must remain kind in the society and would not pursue the matter.
