Stabbed In The Neck

(with a hat tip to Tammy Swofford, who provided the medical information in this blog post)

We spend much time discussing jihadists. What of their victims, particularly their surviving victims?

Image credit: Candice Hedge, from Brisbane, was viciously attacked in the city's centre on Saturday night while having a drink after work. She has described the horrifying moment her throat was slashed.

What kind of man looks a woman in the eye, then stabs her in the throat?

Candice Hedge, survivor of the London Bridge jihad attack, appears to have a "Panda tube" coming out of her nose. The Panda tube is a weighted feeding tube. Ms. Hedge probably sustained a tear in her esophagus. Thank God it was not her trachea!

From London attack: Australian woman Candice Hedge stabbed in neck (dated June 4, 2017):
An Australian woman has been left unable to speak after she was stabbed in the throat during the terror attacks in London, her family says.

Candice Hedge, 34, from Brisbane, is recovering at St Thomas Hospital following emergency surgery for a knife wound to her neck.

"She can't talk. She's been stabbed around her neck, her throat. She's all bandaged up." her mother, Kim Del Toro, told Fairfax Media.

"She went into surgery, but she's going to be fine, thank goodness."

[...]

Ms Hedge has been living in London for the past year and she was working with her boyfriend, Luke, at a bar and restaurant in the Borough Market when one of the terrorists stormed the building on Saturday night.

"He heard some commotion out the front and went out to see what was going on," Ms Hedge's mother said.

"He saw some men with knives coming toward them, and he ran back inside to see where Candice was."

In the chaos, he couldn't find her and police yelled for everyone to stay down.

Then, she came running toward him, holding her bleeding neck.

He grabbed her and the two of them took an ambulance to hospital....
Read the rest HERE.

What will Ms. Hedge's life be like from this point on? The Panda tube is typically a long-term medical device, and such a device typically requires daily or every-other-day maintenance as long as the device remains in place.

And after the Panda tube is removed, will Ms. Hedge's throat still hurt every time she swallows? A slash into any part of the body typically causes nerve damage, damage which can persist lifelong.

Survivors of jihad attacks may persevere in spirit, but their bodies may still suffer for the rest of the survivors' lives.

  1. Q: What kind of man looks a woman in the eye, then stabs her in the throat?

    A: A Muslim Vermin, of course.

    I hope that her speech is restored and she speaks-out against this scourge that Western Europe is inflicting upon itself.

      Aha! You win the prize for the correct answer.

      Candice Hedge is resilient and plucky, but I know from experience that nerve damage is a terrible condition. So many nerves in the neck!

      Jon, I have my doubts that she'll speak out against this scourge that Western Europe is inflicting upon itself; other survivors of the London Bridge Jihad Attack have been saying [paraphrases], "Don't blame Islam" and "Don't be anti-Muslim."

    2. "Don't blame Islam" and "Don't be anti-Muslim."

      WOW! I was un-aware of that. It sounds like there is no hope there as those sheep await the next round. Yeah, after all [they] did elect a Muslim Mayor.

    1. NOT an "animal" –– a BARBARIAN.

      Animals don't kill for cheap thrills, or out of sheer spite. They leave that to us.

      Your assessment likening Islamaniacs to animals is unfair and defamatory to the entire animal kingdom.

    2. He must be the same species as the guy who stabbed a pregnant women on the NYC subway today because she brushed his leg.

      He's clearly not in the advanced species that has crippled Yemen's medical infrastructure and started the worst cholera epidemic the world has seen in decades.
      We kill from a distance so it's okay.

  6. They grieve for the dead...stacks of flowers, balloons, group hugs, etc...
    For the terribly wounded victims, some of whom will never be the same, physically or emotionally, the news proceeds to the next story and they're essentially forgotten. Not much the world can do for them, and who knows how to properly mourn in cases like this? I hope the survivors get the help they need, flowers, sympathy... it's all so sad.

    1. Z,

      And that is one aspect of all this that frustrates me!

      About 1.5 years ago, when I told an open-borders neocon acquaintance of mine about what how an illegal ruined my back in that car accident I sustained in 2005, I heard, "Oh, I'm sorry." Then he moved right on to talk about something else. He continues to advocate for open borders. I wonder how he would feel if the same thing had happened to him, to his wife, or to one of his children. An "I'm sorry" followed by a shrug? Really?

      Because I'm still dealing with that back injury -- and will till the day I die -- I greatly empathize with those terrorism victims who have life-changing injuries THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE TAKEN PLACE!

      Yes, these survivors need flowers and sympathy -- and financial help, too. I can't imagine that they will ever be able to work the hours they used to work. I know that I certainly can't -- and the root cause of my inability to work is that back injury I sustained 12 years ago.

    2. AN OPEN BORDERS NEOCON!? hm!
      Yes, sadly, you have actually LIVED what it's like to be hurt by illegals....so sad. I'm sorry you so closely associate with such hurt.

      I also wanted to tell you something hilarious I just heard on CNN, from an ex FBI assistant to Mueller, obviously a liberal "obstruction must be proven like it was with NIXON AND (get this, AOW), what was ALLEGED against Clinton"
      Don't you love it? ALLEGED against the Dem but NO ALLEGATION TO NIXON! :-)

    3. Any comment on the British election, Z ?

      Looks like Theresa Thatcher is so far up the junction she can't form a government without an ultra religious party with terrorist ties to the Ulster Defense League.

      Can't wait till she negotiates Brexit. Angie will eat her lunch.

    5. The Sneering Socialist Smee has a point: Brexit caught young voters napping. This vote was them waking up and getting their asses to the polls.

      The tide, my friends, is still towards globalism, progressivism and outright unabashed worship of the world citizen high-tech billionaire robber barons who mouth the right platitudes and fund the trendy causes.

    6. SF,
      We are ushering in a brave new world.

      In a dystopian sense -- although the napping young voters you mentioned don't see that. Yet. Or, maybe they'll never realize it.

      BTW, it isn't only the young voters who oppose Brexit.

    7. FT, Just calling 'em like I see 'em, even as I lament the hellbound train we are on...

      AOW, Yes, I meant it in the dystopian sense. Whole generations of people believe the world will be a better place with no borders and oppressive governments to keep society on the path of "progress."

      She's lucky that her carotids weren't damaged. She could have ended up having a stroke!

      Her life never to be the same.

      Yet, the West wishes to believe that she will get past what happened. That might not be the case, but believing that she will is comforting.

    There you have it. Thanks to incessant leftist brainwashing, we now have victims of Islamic murder campaigns willing to accept responsibility for what happened to them. It is nothing short of extraordinary. We have to conclude from this that thanks to the duckyists of the world, the Islamists are winning the war. There are only three possible solutions: completely destroy Islam, rely on the moderates to change Islam, or convert to the will of camel humpers. The world would be a far greater place without Islam.

    2. According to Sharia law:

      • Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (evidence: graphic).
      • Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
      • Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death.
      • Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by death (see Allah moon god).
      • A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death (compulsion in religion).
      • A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
      • A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
      • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
      • Girls' clitoris should be cut (Muhammad's words, Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
      • A woman can have 1 husband, who can have up to 4 wives; Muhammad can have more.
      • A man can beat his wife for insubordination (see Religion of Peace).
      • A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a woman needs her husband's consent to divorce.
      • A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it.
      • Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
      • A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
      • A woman's testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries ½ the weight of a man's.
      • A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits (see Errors in Quran).
      • A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval).
      • A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
      • Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah - i.e., be "Halal".
      • Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.
      • The list goes on (see Sharia law in America, Canada, UK, Europe & Saudi Arabia).

      I just heard that there are protests going on against this nonsense as well as counter protesters, apparently, in favor of it. I like Mustang's 1st solution to the Muslim problem; perhaps we could start with those counter protesters.

    3. Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.

      No, Taqiyya is a shi'a concept that allowed shi'a's to deny their identity to sunnis if it meant evding death or punishment.

    1. German law has a very low tolerance for aggression of any form.

      You can be fined for insulting gestures aimed at others like turning a crank on your head (signaling that you think someone is crazy) or looking at another driver and pointing at your own head (meaning, "You're stupid!").
