In Neapolitan there is a saying to express a threat, ‘Ti cable l’uocchie’ (I blind you, ed.), Which yesterday someone thought of translating into reality. It happened yesterday afternoon at the Santa Maria delle Grazie hospital in Pozzuoli, where the carabinieri intervened called by the staff on duty. A former hospital nurse, who was waiting in the Covid filter area for a visit, attacked a man who was also waiting to be received by a doctor. The exchange of words that preceded the attack is trivial. According to what was reconstructed by the Arma military investigating to clarify the dynamics, DF, a clean record, 44, asked the man, a 41-year-old, for a cigarette; having obtained it, he returned to ask for the lighter, and here the answer of the other (‘but you still want, even the lung’) annoyed him. With two fingers, he pulled out his left eye and blew his right eyeball. He is now in prison for aggravated injuries. His victim is hospitalized on a reserved prognosis, but not life threatening; the right eye is lost, and the condition of the left one is being evaluated by doctors.
