Investigators are looking for a BCIT nursing student who tried to save a man who’d been stabbed at the Plaza of Nations on Halloween.

Vancouver police received several 911 calls shortly after 2 a.m. on Nov. 1 about two groups of men involved in an altercation there.

Three men suffered serious stab wounds, including 25-year-old Hansen Jia Chen from Burnaby, who died from his injuries.

According to witnesses, police said, she identified herself as a BCIT nursing practicum student.

Investigators would like to speak with the woman as a witness.
