WARNING - GRAPHIC CONTENT: A man has been filmed appearing incredibly calm despite having a kitchen knife lodged in his head while covered in his own blood.
An onlooker filmed the unidentified man following his reported involvement in a domestic dispute in Harlem, in the US state of New York, on Tuesday (local time), The New York Post reported.
The 36-year-old was seen walking casually towards an ambulance and speaking with people at the scene, who seemed understandably mortified at the weapon sticking out the top of his head.
“He looked like he didn’t even feel it,” one witness said, adding it appeared the man was refusing to enter the ambulance for treatment.
According to the New York Post, a security guard from a nearby pharmacy said he was traumatised.
“It looks like a scene out of a freaking movie,” the guard said.
The victim reportedly avoided serious injury because the knife didn’t penetrate his skull. He was reportedly taken to hospital in a stable condition.
Police said the man and a 34-year-old woman had been in a dispute with another man, who injured the woman before lodging the knife in the victim’s head and fleeing the scene.
Details have yet to emerge on whether anyone has been arrested or charged in relation to the incident.
The footage was shared to the Instagram account fresh20s with the caption, “It’s going to be a crazy summer”.
