MIAMI -- A homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre, vicious attack faces a bigger threat from infection than from the injuries themselves, according to experts on facial reconstruction.
MIAMI (AP) - Doctors say a homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre attack is in good spirits at a Miami hospital. They say Ronald Poppo is talking and walking with the help of hospital staff.
His left eye was removed and doctors are trying to find a way to restore vision in his right eye. He was attacked alongside a busy highway last month for reasons that are still unclear. Police fatally shot his attacker.
