Man Walked Into a McDonald's With Knife in His Back

A man walked into a McDonald's in Queens, New York after literally being stabbed in the back. According to DNAinfo, the unidentified man walked into the fast food chain at 10 a.m. yesterday with a large kitchen knife sticking out between his shoulder blades. And blood pouring down his back. For whatever reason, no one thought to suppress the bleeding with a burger. Witnesses say he had just been in an argument with two men.

Tromaine Yancey, who was at the restaurant for a job interview, tells CBS New York that the victim was on his cell phone talking to a loved one and "telling them it might be the last time he's speaking to them." Customers apparently "ditched their food" to make sure that the man didn't fall backwards onto the knife until medics arrived. The man has been taken to the hospital and is currently in serious condition. Go, watch the local news story:
