Ohmigod!

This is just unreal:

SHAFIQUE el-Fahkri’s recovery has been amazing. It is overshadowed, however, by Mr Fahkri’s even more amazing generosity of spirit.

The 20-year-old hospitality student says he bears no ill-will towards Liam Peart, the Oak Park apprentice electrician who speared a chair through his eye and throat outside Metro nightclub in January.

“Honestly, I forgive the bloke,” Mr Fahkri said, at his family’s Northcote home yesterday. He spoke in a quiet, determined tone.

“It doesn’t bother me, what he did to me. But I’m very, very upset at him for the way he tore (at) my family and friends… They got hurt big-time.”

(…)

Mr Fahkri was saved by surgeons at the Royal Melbourne Hospital after the spearing of his face. At first glance today, one would barely believe that he had suffered such a horrific blow. His face bears only a small scar, below his eye. Astoundingly, his vision is almost 95 per cent complete.

Now check out the CAT scan. Unbelievable.
