It's been two months since the Miami Zombie incident grabbed headlines all around the world. And now, the victim whose face was eaten alive has spoken up for the first time to shed some light on how the events unfolded on the dreadful day.
Ronald Poppo was the homeless man whose face eaten off by so-called “zombie” Rudy Eugene. In audio obtained by CBS Miami, the 65-year-old transient can be heard detailing the events leading up to the gruesome attack which left him blind:
He attacked me. He just ripped me to ribbons. He chewed up my face. He plucked out my eyes. Basically that’s all there is to say about it.
For a very short amount of time I thought he was a good guy. But he just went and turned berserk. He apparently didn’t have a good day at the Beach and he — he was coming back. And I guess he took it out, took it out on me or something.
Although has a long way to go while rehabilitating at Jackson Memorial Hospital, he appears to be resigned to his new reality.
I thank the Miami Police Department for saving my life. That’s about the best I could sum it up as. If they didn’t get there in a nick of time, I would’ve definitely be in worse shape. Possibly I’ll be DOA.
