'Cheating' gamer stabbed through head

Old news, but news.

"A Chinese teenager has survived being stabbed through the head with a 14cm blade after being accused of cheating in a computer game.

Xiao Wei, 16, was playing the online game Counter-Strike at an internet cafe in Mishazi, Jilin province, when he was dragged outside and brutally attacked, the Daily Mail newspaper reports.

Wei remained conscious throughout the attack and managed to walk to the Second Affiliated Hospital of Jilin University with the help of his friend Huang, who had also been stabbed.

Doctors there said an X-ray showed the blade entering Wei’s right temple and exiting about 1cm above his left temple.

"His face was covered in blood, but he was still conscious," neurosurgeon Yan Shijun was quoted as saying.

It took surgeons more than two hours to remove the knife and Wei is now in a stable condition.

Huang, who suffered injuries to his arm, said he and Wei were attacked after being accused of using a cheat code in Counter-Strike to see through walls.

"When we were playing games, a group of people from the same cafe came to us, saying we must install some software to win the game — then we had an argument with them," he said.

"My left arm was stabbed through by them, and when they had gone, I found Xiao Wei was lying on the ground with a knife in his head."

Dr Yan said he had never seen someone stay conscious after being stabbed through the head." 9 News.
