A young girl and her mother screamed for help while her grandfather was being “savagely attacked” by an angry villager using a machete.
The attack took place before their eyes at Falealupo last Friday. Today, the 68-year-old grandfather, Gaga Sagele, is fighting for his life at the Tupua Tamasese Meaole Hospital.
He lost three fingers and he required an urgent operation to treat wounds to his arms, chest and face.
His family spent Saturday afternoon seeking for blood donors to help the the injured man.
The incident was confirmed yesterday by Mr. Sagele’s sister, Melania Maufilo.
