London, Feb 3 (ANI): A Russian woman, who was a victim of mugging, is said to have walked home without realising that the mugger had plunged a six inch knife deep into her back.
Julia Popova, 22, was on her way to her parents' house in the Russian capital Moscow from work, when her attacker snatched her handbag.
After grappling with the man, she was left so shocked by the ordeal that she could not feel the kitchen knife in her neck, which was just fractions of an inch from her spinal cord.
When she got home her horrified parents rushed her to hospital where surgeons managed to remove the blade without damaging her spine.
"Shock had kicked in and her body prevented her from feeling any pain. She simply walked home without feeling the knife in her back," the Sun quoted a medic as saying. (ANI)
