This happened in 2012. I was walking to the the store in Rochester, NY. Three guys tried jumping and robbing me. I was fighting two of them with my skateboard while the third came from behind. He cut me once and I turned to face him and then he cut me again (two slashes across the face).
I didn’t feel it at first so I kept fighting. They eventually ran off and that’s when I realized I was bleeding a lot. I tried waving cars down to call me an ambulance. Got hit by two cars trying to do so. Finally an old man stopped and called.
This photo was in the hospital. I was awake I just had my eyes closed for the picture. I was 22 at the time.
