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.
