A MAN is said to be in a critical condition after he was apparently struck several times with a sharp object while entering his house in Inanda yesterday morning.

According to Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha, the man is “very very lucky to be alive”.

He said the man’s wounds had to be the worst he has seen in long time. “They were very horrific.”

When the Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene, they found the man lying on the floor with life-threatening injuries.

“After he was placed on a ventilator and deftly immobilised on a trauma board, they airlifted the patient to the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital for the care that he required,” he added.

In a statement, he said the exact details to the cause of the attack and preceding events will remain a subject for police investigation and comment.

The police were not available for comment.
