On the afternoon of November 1, a knife-wielding man on board a bus from the city of Lishui in Zhejiang Province, began threatening fellow passengers as they approached their destination in Zhoushan.

Fellow passengers recall that 40-year-old knifeman started "talking nonsense" part-way through the journey and repeatedly saying "I want water." The couple sitting in front of him handing back a bottle of water but as soon as he finished that he just starting chanting "I want water" all over again.

As they approached the Zhoushan Bridge, the man suddenly drew a knife and began threatening the passengers in front of him. Driver Zhang Shuanglin pulled over as soon as he could and told the passengers to get off and call the police, before charging to the back of the bus and subduing the knifeman with help from a few passengers.
