A Russian man who had been out drinking failed to notice that he had a knife embedded in his back. Mr Lyalin
had gone out after work and had been drinking large amounts of vodka. On waking up the following morning he made his way home, had a snack and went to bed to sleep off his hangover. It was only later that his wife noticed a knife handle sticking out of his back and called an ambulance. The knife had gone through soft tissue without piecing any organs and the man now feels fine. It later emerged that his drinking partner has stabbed him when they had an argument. Mr Lyalin holds no grudges he is quoted as saying "We were drinking and what doesn't happen when you're drunk?".
