Price says, the 53-year-old was upset and followed him into a gas station parking lot.

"I saw him get out of the car, but I didn't see him get out with a knife. I had no clue," Price said.

The men argued before Price says, Carer lunged at him, plunging a four-inch blade into his body before driving away.

"He definitely left the knife in me. I'm the one who pulled it out," said Price.

Price found help in a good Samaritan who held pressure on the wound.

"I'm very grateful to him that he helped me out," Price said.
