A 35-year-old man who was stabbed in the heart in Elmhurst on Monday night — yet somehow was able to walk five blocks to a nearby hospital — is still fighting for his life, police reported.

Law enforcement sources said an unidentified individual stabbed the victim in the chest and puncturing his heart on Macnish Street near Whitney Avenue at around 10 p.m. on Oct. 9.

Even so, according to WABC-TV, the victim summoned the strength to walk five blocks to Elmhurst Hospital, where he underwent surgery and is now in critical condition.

Police did not have many details about the incident. There’s no description of the perpetrator, and the motive is unknown. No arrests have been made.

The 110th Precinct Detective Squad is investigating the case.
