Two heroic city firefighters pounced on a meat-cleaver-wielding maniac this morning as he hacked his terrified wife, authorities said.
The bloody domestic attack occurred outside Fong’s Trading at 74 Canal St. in Chinatown — and was captured on chilling security video.
Firefighters Jose Ortiz and James Trainor, who work across the street at Engine Company 9, Ladder Company 6, said they first heard the couple screaming at each other and tussling around 10:24 a.m.
As they ran to help her, they say the man took out a meat cleaver and started to attack her.
The firefighters were able to separate the two and subdue the attacker.
The wounded woman fled from the scene before she was stopped and turned over to EMT’s for medical care.
The 24-year old victim suffered wounds to her face, back and hips, and was transported to Bellevue Hospital.
