A family fight between two brothers almost turned deadly when the older brother stabbed his younger brother in the face with a knife.
Happened in the city of Sobradinho, in the Bahia interior, Brazil.
The incredible thing is that the knife did not reach the boy’s eyes, but was close. When the patient arrived at the hospital in the capital, the duty doctors themselves were surprised and ordered the young man’s immediate transfer to another health facility with more resources to perform immediate surgery and removal of the blade.
The older brother tried escaping but was caught within the hour and charged with attempted murder. The police did not disclose what the reason for the fight was.
