A man from Vailele is recovering at the Tupua Tamasese Meaole Hospital following a near fatal fight on Sunday night.

The man, whose identity is not known, is believed to have gotten into a fight with a relative from the same village during a drinking session.

A sharp object is suspected to have been used to inflict the injury.

It was not possible to get a comment from the Police yesterday. But at the Vaiele house where the incident happened, there was a strong Police presence when the Samoa Observer arrived.

A relative who spoke to the Samoa Observer on the condition of anonymity said their lawyer has told the family to refrain from speaking to the media.

“The incident happened on Sunday evening,” he said. “The two men involved were having a drink in the afternoon.

They both work throughout the week so this was the only day they get to relax and have a drink.

“They don’t often drink so I think they both had too much beer and it ended badly.

At about seven o’clock that evening, the relative said: “We heard somebody screaming.

Because they were drinking at the back, we could not see them.” Relatives nearby rushed to the incident and found the badly injured man.

“We are not sure about what happened between them and the reason why the other person reacted angrily.”

The family member said the man was in a critical condition when he was admitted to the hospital.

“A police officer was here just before you came to inform us that our relative who got hurt is still breathing,” he said.

“I cannot provide any more details, because our family lawyer has informed us not to talk to anyone else.

“The only thing that I am happy about is that the one who got hurt is still alive and I thank God for the good news.”
