As we previously mentioned, Ronald Poppo, a 65-year-old homeless man, had his face eaten by a drug crazed maniac!
He's currently in the hospital in critical condition, but in a grand gesture, the local county is going to pay for all his medical bills.
A Miami area plastic surgeon said:
"It could easily cost $100,000 to $200,000 for the reconstructive surgeries that he will need to get his face back."
So much of his face is missing that they may need to perform a full face transplant!
Even though this procedure can be impossibly expensive, the county will still pay for it.
"The county pays for those who can’t pay for themselves, so he fits the bill because he is homeless. It will require an ophthalmologist, a cranial facial surgeon, a micros-surgeon and plastic surgeons. It is like something ripped from a TV plot – it would be like the Manhattan project to rebuild him."
So sad that he was attacked so savagely but we're glad the county has his back!
We wish him nothing but a speedy and complete recovery.
