We’re not sure what is more shocking about this story: that this guy had a chair thrown into his skull and recovered almost completely, or that the assailant was only punished with community service?!?
An Australian man who hurled a metal chair at another man, leaving one of its legs lodged 4 inches into his eye socket and neck, was sentenced Tuesday to 400 hours of community service.
Liam Peart, 20, hurled the metal chair during a nightclub brawl in Melbourne in January, hitting Shafique El-Fahkri, 19, who was standing about 10 feet away.
A leg of the chair plunged into his eye socket and down into his neck. Surgeons removed the chair leg in a three-hour operation through the right side of El-Fahkri’s neck, according to media reports.
El-Fahkri spent a month in intensive care at a Melbourne hospital. The attack left him with a raspy voice, but 95 percent of his vision has been restored.
