After sustaining gruesome injuries, cannibal attack victim Ronald Poppo, 65, is reportedly improving during his stay at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL.
His medical team reports that Poppo is “awake and alert”, remembers the attack, and understands what is currently happening. His medical team also disclosed that half of his “face is missing”, and they are therefore focused on “cleaning and closing his wounds.” Poppo is said to have suffered one lost eye, “a missing nose”, and “a forehead with a mass of scabs.”
After getting the patient’s permission last Tuesday, the hospital released two very graphic photographs of Poppo (viewer discretion advised).
Poppo, who allegedly has been homeless in Miami since the 1970s, is also receiving mental health support. His medical expenses are being covered by Medicaid, Medicare, as well as a fund that has been set up in his name.
University of Miami trauma surgeon Nicholas Namias stated, “He’s pleased to report to all of you that he’s feeling well, he’s eating, he’s walking around with physical therapy, he’s talking with us.”
Poppo was attacked by Miami Beach resident Rudy Eugene, 31, on May 26. Eugene, who was suspected to have taken a synthetic drug, was caught “chewing, brutalizing Poppo’s face” on the Mac Arthur Causeway before being fatally shot by police who were called to the scene.
