Gruesome X-Ray Shows Knife Sticking Out Of Man's Head After Attack
A gruesome X-ray shows the injuries a 60-year-old man suffered when he was stabbed in the head as he tried to stop an argument over a bicycle in the city of Getxo, in the northern Spanish region of the Basque County.
According to local media, the incident took place on Tuesday 2 June at around 5.30pm when two men started arguing about who owned the bike.
In an attempt to diffuse the situation, the victim, who works as a plumber, approached the pair and tried to mediate the situation when one of the men stabbed him in the head and then fled the scene.
The 36-year-old assailant was later arrested and charged with attempted murder.
An ambulance was called to the scene, but while a paramedic treated the victim, a decision was made to not remove the knife until there was more information about the injuries it caused.

As can be seen in the X-ray, the blade of the knife was rammed through the side of the man's head deep into his skull.
Even though it's just an X-ray, you can still see how gruesome the attack was, and how lucky the man is to be alive after it.
The victim was subsequently taken to the nearby Hospital Universitario Cruces, where he currently remains in a serious condition. It's unclear if doctors have removed the blade yet.
It's not the only random knife attack incident to make the news in recent months. Back in March, a shopkeeper fared a little better in Birmingham when a masked thug brandishing a knife targeted the A1 Convenience Store in Kingstanding and tried to rob it.
The incident occurred just before the store closed at 10.30pm. When he was threatened, the anonymous shopkeeper thought quickly and reached behind the counter.
He grabbed a handful of chilli powder from a container that was stored there and threw it at his attacker, sending the knife-wielding would-be robber packing after he was engulfed in a bright orange cloud of spice.
Although the shopkeeper released the footage, he didn't press charges.
