Photo Gallery: Face chewing victim recovers


A homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre attack last year in Miami appeared Tuesday to be mostly at peace with his disfigurement, strumming a guitar, making jokes and thanking people for their donations to help pay for his care.

Ronald Poppo doesn’t like to leave his hospital room, though, and he won’t allow anyone to visit, other than his doctors and nurses. He lost his left eye, his nose and most of the surrounding skin when a naked man attacked him for no reason beside a highway a year ago.
