My son, who is modeling in New York, was out at a club this weekend, and was attacked as he tried to help his girlfriend. When he fell to the ground, another guy kicked him in the face. He lost a tooth in the front (they wired his top teeth, trying to save another tooth), his lip was split in half & the other side of his face is cut & swollen. He said it was weird how it all happened & felt like it was some kind of set up. They only went after his face.
He was in the hospital for 7 hrs. They took his phone so I didn't find out about any of it until 3:00 p.m. the next day! (6:00 pm NY time.)
I can't believe that I wasn't called, notified or anything! His face is a total mess, not to mention the missing tooth! He isn't able to eat anything solid, for fear of causing another loose tooth to fall out. I was just sick...being so far away & not able to take care of him right now. I'm trying to get him home next week (his mouth will be wired for about 6 wks) and the issue of trying to get a tooth put in, obviously no work with missing teeth.
Don't get me wrong, I'm soooo grateful that it wasn't worse, being kicked in the head could've caused severe head trauma, but it's just so hard to see him suffering like this.
