I wonder when it hit them that this was actually a real stabbing?

Daily Mail – A frightening scene emerged Friday at the legendary Art Basel Miami Beach as a woman was stabbed, causing some patrons to think they were watching performance art.

Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said the horrific incident occurred around 5pm at the Miami Beach Convention Center in a corridor near an art installation entitled ‘The Swamp of Sagittarius,’ created by Miami artist Naomi Fisher and partner Agatha Wara.

Police said the victim confronted the suspect, Siyuan Zhao, about purposely following her around the art show and bumping into her several times.

Zhao then pulled out an X-Acto knife and stabbed the victim in the right side of the neck and left shoulder without warning or provocation, authorities said.

The victim suffered several cuts, and a photo taken of her shows blood all over a white jacket that she was wearing as she sat on the ground covering her face while someone applied pressure to her neck wound with what appeared to be a white cloth.
