Counter Strike cheater stabbed in the head by irate opponent

Thankfully, after 10 hours of surgery, the blade was removed

In an action that's sure to rile up the "video games lead to violence" activists, a match of the popular first-person shooter Counter Strike at an internet cafe in China almost lead to a deadly attack. After a player had been discovered as a cheater, he was confronted by his opponents, and the argument escalated into an attack, which concluded with the cheater being stabbed in the head with a rusty knife. The attackers fled the scene and have not been found, as the cafe did not require IDs. An x-ray of the victim can be seen above, while a more graphic image of the surgery can be found in the source link below.

Thankfully, after 10 hours of surgery, the blade was removed, with the attack seemingly missing major arteries and parts of the brain affecting motor functions. The player is being kept at the hospital to be observed, as the rust from the knife could lead to complications or infection.
