Doctors: Face-chewing victim 'awake and alert'

Doctors: Miami homeless man who survived face-chewing attack now 'awake and alert,' walking By The Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) ' A homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre attack is awake and alert at a Miami hospital.

In a photograph shown to reporters Tuesday, Ronald Poppo is walking down a hospital hallway, supported by hospital staff on either side of him.

Doctors are planning to further update his condition Tuesday afternoon. The photo shows the upper two-thirds of Poppo's face covered in scabs. He's missing his nose and both eye sockets are covered ' one with gauze and one with what appears to be a skin graft.



He's been at Jackson Memorial Hospital since he was attacked May 26 by Rudy Eugene, who moments earlier had been swinging naked on a nearby light pole.

A police officer shot and killed Eugene. Autopsy results are still pending.
