Graphic Photos: Man Loses three Limbs & Half his face to Flesh Eating Bacteria which Started as a Common Cold

A young father-of-one who came down with a common cold in November has now lost three limbs and skin from his face after the cold developed into a horrific flesh-eating bug. Alex Lewis, 34, had to have both of his legs and his left arm amputated after his feet, fingertips, arms, lips, nose and part of his ears turned black. His major organs shut down and the keen golfer, who has a three-year-old boy called Sam, spent a week in a coma as the deadly bacteria wreaked havoc through his body.

DailyMail reports that for Alex Lewis, the nightmare started only four months ago when he started suffering from a common cold. However, as his symptoms worsened, he was rushed to hospital where he was diagnosed with a blood infection which developed into septicaemia and toxic shock syndrome.

Speaking from his hospital bed, Mr Lewis recalled how he went to bed early one night in November feeling unwell, only to wake at 2am, passing blood in his urine. His skin turned purple, his eyes dilated and he was rushed to hospital, where doctors later told his partner Lucy Townsend, he wouldn't make it. But amazingly, Lewis survived.
Lewis said:

‘In a strange way it is the most amazing thing I have ever lived through. I think nothing but good will come from it. I think you cope because you have to. If you don't, chances are you will probably die. We have all got a resilience within us but it just doesn't get tested. As a family we have been tested in the last four months to the max. But you have to make the best of the situation, realise what you have got, not what you haven't got.

The 34 year old father-of-one, from Stockbridge, Hampshire, underwent a series of gruelling operations in December and January during which surgeons amputated both of his legs and his left hand. He now hopes that one day, he will walk again on prosthetic 'blade runner' limbs. See photos below.

God have mercy! Guys, here are must see photos from venues nationwide where the Natonal Immigration Service test is holding today. Check out the mad crowd! These are Nigerian graduates!!

Already there are reports that some of the exam candidates are already fainting due to stress. In Abuja, there was a reported stampede at the venue, six people are reportedly dead - a pregnant woman one of them, while more who sustained injuries were rushed to the National Hospital from the venue of the Immigration exercise for medical attention. 

This is so sad. To even think that at the end of the day, only a very tiny few will be selected for these jobs.

Man Blinds Another Man's Wife cos she Refused his Sexual Advances (Photo)

A 35-year old man, Arinze Kingsley, has left a married woman, Mrs Amaka Ohanwe, partially blind after she allegedly refused his sexual advances. Amaka was seriously injured in her right eye when she was allegedly beaten up by Kingsley at a beauty salon. She said after undergoing several operations, the doctors at Apapa General Hospital confirmed that she cannot see with the eye again.

PMNews reports that following the assault, the police at Area ‘B’ Apapa arrested Kingsley and charged him with assault before Apapa Magistrate’s Court after which he was remanded in Kirikiri Prisons in Lagos State. Both Amaka and Kingsley, who is still single, admitted that they were friends but Amaka said they were just friends not lovers. She said she stopped relating with Kingsley when she discovered that he was desperate to have sex with her despite the fact that he knew that she was married and had two kids. She said after several attempts by him to sleep with her failed, he became aggressive and when she noticed that, she started avoiding him.

Amaka said Kingsley eventually traced her to a salon at Pen Crescent, Apapa, Lagos where she went to have her hair done and attacked her in front of the beauty shop.

“He waited for me outside the salon. When he saw me, he started abusing me after I refused his advances. I replied him and he hit my eye and threw me on the floor. He started  hitting his head on my eyes until I started bleeding,” she told the court.

Amaka said it was their neighbours who came to her rescue and took her to the hospital, while Kingsley immediately started his motorcycle and rode off after attacking her. She alleged that after the attack, Kingsley boasted that nothing would happen to him because he has money to bail himself out of any difficult situation. Amaka reported the case to the police but alleged that she was asked to collect N30,000 for her eye operation in order to settle the matter out of court. Amaka said she had spent over N200,000 on the surgeries but they were not successful. She called on the state government to come to her aid and ensure justice was done in the matter.

Meanwhile, when Kingsley was contacted, he admitted attacking Amaka but said he wanted to settle the matter out of court but she refused. When he was arraigned, he pleaded not guilty.The presiding magistrate, Mrs O.A Adegbite, granted him bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum. He was, however, remanded in prison custody pending when he will fulfill his bail conditions. The matter was adjourned till 24 March.
