Man woke to find knife in his face

A Russian man who woke up with a splitting headache after a heavy drinking session found a kitchen knife stuck in his face.

Artur Dzhavanyan had invited a pal round for a drink but went to bed early after telling his friend he was fed up with hearing him moan.

He woke up in the night with a splitting headache and went to the bathroom to get a glass of water, when he noticed the knife sticking out of his face, just below his eye.

In a panic he ran to a neighbour's house and called an ambulance. His friend had already left the flat.

He was taken to a hospital near his home in the Voronezh region in Central Russia where the knife was removed in a 40 minute operation.

Surgeon Viktor Tolstenko said Dzhavanyan was lucky: "If the knife had hit his eye and his facial nerves, the consequences would have been tragic. Artur got off lightly with a small scar on his face."

The knife was embedded 10cm under the eye and had pierced the cheek bone.

Police say they found his pal's fingerprints on the knife, but Dzhavanyan refused to press charges, saying he was just happy to be alive.
