In Miami, a naked man chewed off 75% of another man's face, in what is being called a "zombie-like" attack. According to Fox8.com, the brutal attack was only stopped when police shot the attacker several times, finally killing him. The victim survived, but is seriously injured and remains in the hospital.
The man was under the influence of bath salts at the time. Larry Vega, a witness to the attack that occurred on Miami's MacArthur Causeway, said, "The guy was like tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, 'Get off!' You know it's like the guy just kept eating the other guy away, like ripping his skin. It was just a blob of blood. You couldn't really see, it was just blood all over the place." Vega flagged down a passing police officer.
Police report that an officer approached the zombie face-chewer, telling him to stop and pointing a gun at him. The man turned around and growled like a wild animal, and continued to eat the other man's face. Police has seen violent attacks from bath salts in the past, and emergency room doctors are well aware of the dangerous state this drug puts people in. Bath salts can cause the user to hallucinate, becoming delirious. It also elevates that body temperature, giving the user extreme physical strength and violent tendencies.
