Victim hanging on for dear life
The naked cannibalistic man who was found eating the face off of another man in an astonishing attack on Saturday afternoon in Miami, Florida, was identified on Monday.
The man who was shot multiple times by a police officer, to be stopped from continuing on with chewing the man’s face is 31 year old Rudy Eugene according to the Miami Herald.
The victim of the naked cannibal remained in very critical condition on Sunday night at Jackson Memorial Hospital. The victim was left mutilated, with much of his face gone, the skin ripped away, the nose bitten and the eyes gouged. His goatee remained, but not much else.
“We’re hoping that he pulls through, for his well-being, but also so he can tell us what happened,” said Sgt. Javier Ortiz, vice president of the Miami police union. “Only he knows.”
The victim though still had not been identified on Monday.
The ghastly scene happened at approximately 2 p.m. Saturday on the MacArthur Causeway’s off-ramp to Biscayne Boulevard. The scene was spotted by a road ranger and he shouted on his loudspeaker for the attacker to back away. A woman who saw what happened flagged down an officer who shot the assailant dead.
