An 18-year-old Langley man is lucky to be alive after being stabbed nine times outside a Surrey house party on Saturday night.

At close to 2 a.m., Kody Butchko was at a house in the 13300 block of 62 Ave. when it’s believed he tried to break up a fight and was attacked for it.

The apprentice plumber was chased down the street by several young men who beat and stabbed him. Police say he had stab wounds to his back, legs and chest.

A passerby found him in a ditch and he was rushed to hospital. No arrests have been made yet, said police.
