This is the moment passers-by rush to save a hero policeman after a man with a machete knife him in the head and body in a ‘frenzied attack’ as he tried to protect himself with a taser.
A huddle of police officers can be seen next to their fallen comrade, desperately trying to stop him bleeding to death after a ferocious machete attack.
Just a few feet away – officers have pinned the attacker to the ground.
Another image shows a policeman holding the horrifying 12in blade that was used in the onslaught.
Yesterday witnesses told of the ferocity of the assault on the innocent policeman, in his 30s and who has served with the Met for ten years.
One 32-year-old woman who saw the stabbing and its aftermath said: ‘His head was completely open, it looked like the guy had tried to scalp him.

‘I heard banging and screaming outside so ran to the window and saw the policeman with the stab wounds in the head.
‘It was incredible, he was on the ground but was able to Taser the guy. He was on his hands and knees but was zapping him. What a tough guy, amazing.
‘I think he realised he was bleeding heavily and badly injured so rolled over on to the ground after a while. Then another police car came. The police jumped on the attacker, pinning him down but… he was still screaming and resisting.
‘They had to get their knees on him to stop him wriggling free. There was so much blood on the road. I’m astonished he has survived this.’
Neighbour Shabaz Choudry said: ‘The guy came from the back from his truck and stabbed him in his hand. It was like a sword.’
Another witness described the officer screaming as he was attacked, saying: ‘The guy just launched himself at the cop, hacked at his face completely out of nowhere. I’m in shock.
More emergency services personnel appear on the scene and treat the officer who is covered in blood

This morning there was a blood stain pictured on the road at the scene of the attack in Leyton (pictured above)
People in the area posted photos on Twitter of Midland Road (pictured above) where police had cordoned off the area
Graphic pictures posted on Twitter appear to show the injured officer seconds after fighting off the knifeman, on his hands and knees, blood pouring from his face as he stared in shock at the wounds in the hand in which he had held his Taser. A number of onlookers rushed to help.
Within minutes more than ten officers and paramedics had arrived to help the policeman as he lay motionless, with parts of his uniform cut off and lying on the ground next to him.
Witness, Muhammad Faisal, 31, said: ‘We saw someone lying on the road. We didn’t see the wound, but we saw a lot of blood.
‘I saw one police officer was holding a knife. It was a machete – around a foot long.’
Mr Faisal said he prayed for the officer’s survival, adding: ‘The first thought was maybe the man lying on the floor had lost his life.
‘It makes you think because it was a police officer – people on the road for our safety.
