Darren Bent, from Birmingham, wrote on a social networking site that his wife
was on the bus.

He wrote: “Can’t believe some guy has just stabbed and killed a school girl
right in front of my missus on the number nine bus on her way to work and
she had to give CPR love you xxx the guy did it as bus was about to stop and
ran off.”

Officers flooded the scene on the Hagley Road and remained at the location.
The investigation was said to be in its very early stages.

The road, which is a main commuter route into the city, remained closed and
was likely to remain closed for the rest of the day

A spokesman said: “At 7.37am today police received a call from a member
of the public reporting that a passenger had been attacked.

“Officers and other emergency services were immediately dispatched but it
was clear that nothing could be done to save the victim.

“West Midlands Police have identified the victim’s family and are in the
process of breaking the sad news.”

West Midlands Ambulance Service said it was called to an emergency on board a
bus in Edgbaston shortly after 7.35am.

A spokesman said: “A senior paramedic officer in a rapid response
vehicle, two Basics (British Association for Immediate Care) emergency
medics and two ambulance crews attended.

“One person was confirmed dead at the scene.”

The stabbing took place on a stretch of the road between a Morrisons
supermarket at Tricorn House, an office block.
