Knife in the Head – level 3

18-11-2016 07:00

Following an argument over a motorbike, a man violently attacked a 28-year-old taxi driver in Peru. The 30-year-old attacker, who later admitted to stabbing the taxi driver in the head, was arrested.

The taxi driver was seen walking around in a daze following the incident, but he remained conscious throughout the entire ordeal. To the surprise of doctors, he walked into a hospital with a knife protruding from his head under his own power.

The doctors removed the knife after an hours-long operation.

Difficult words: daze (shock), ordeal (a painful experience), protruding (sticking out).
