It's sad that that happened. Hopefully he'll be ok.

Last I heard he's off the ventilator and his eye still has a chance to heal. Why does he still not have security at these events? There's a new crop of nutjobs every year.

It sounds like his life is in no danger now, but recovery will be slow and not complete. He's 75. It won't be an easy way back.

Anon: Good move. I hope others do the same.

Granny: Unfortunately, given his age and the nature of the injuries, some permanent damage seems inevitable.
