Doctors: US face-chewing victim 'awake and alert'

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. Doctors will further update his condition Tuesday afternoon.

Poppo was attacked May 26 by Rudy Eugene, who was naked and didn’t stop his attack until a police officer shot him to death.

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.

Autopsy results on Eugene are still pending.
