Not just in the head, he’s got defensive wounds on arms too – which is to be expected.
35 year old farmer João Correia da Silva from Alagoa Nova in Paraíba, Brazil was riding on a horse through a field about 5km from the town when he was attacked by three men armed with machetes.
The attackers hacked the farmed in the head multiple times and left him on the dirt road believing he was dead. Although close to it, Da Silva survived and was found by people from nearby community who took him to a hospital.
The police said the victim was well known to them for often getting into fights with others. They believe the attack on him may have been a retaliation for one of his.
