This is the moment a man is seen walking around with a snapped-off knife blade stuck in his head as he argues with the people that attacked him.
The fire brigade later took the unnamed 27-year-old man to hospital in the Argentine city of Bariloche in a reported state of drunkenness, and with the knife still protruding from his forehead.
It is unclear when the fight took place, however, the incident was first reported on 29th May, suggesting it had taken place the night before, and the video went viral on social media the following day.
The police, who were called to the scene by a bystander, arrested three men involved in the brawl as they tried to flee in a Chevrolet Corsa, and officers also seized a knife and two machetes from them.
According to local news outlet El Trece, the suspects, who were also reportedly drunk, had accused the injured man of burning down a house hours earlier.
When the police arrived on the scene, the men reportedly said they were going to “take the law into their own hands”.
The men are reported to all live in the same neighbourhood, and the injured man was able to identify his attackers to the police.
El Trece also reports that the injured man underwent an operation in hospital and was subsequently admitted to intensive care, where he remains with a reserved prognosis.
The three suspects remain in preventive custody, which expires after 15 days. They may be released with ankle tags before facing trial after the investigation is complete.
