Dude Wakes Up from 10-hour Sleep with Knife in Back

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A New Jersey man awoke from a 10-hour sleep with an aching back only to be told by his brother the cause was a 5-inch knife blade stuck in it, police said.


The unidentified victim, who had been drinking, was stabbed when he got into a fight on his porch about 2 a.m. Sunday, went to sleep without realizing he was wounded and woke up hurting but still unaware of his predicament, police Lt. Mark Kieffer said."


This is New Jersey where it isn`t surprising if a dude taking a Sunday morning stroll ends up in the bottom of a river wearing cement shoes.

It`s also hardly surprising if a dude drinking on his porch at 2. am, gets into a fight, and staggers to his bed oblivious that he has a knife stuck in his back.

If this dude had bled to death, few people would have shed any tears.

The assailant, who fled during the fight, has not been apprehended.
