Rugby player Matthew Probert was the victim of one of the most savage attacks we have ever heard of.
Probert, who is a forward for Scunthorpe Rugby Club in England, literally had a hammer embedded in his forehead after being attacked outside a club over the weekend. The incredible, gruesome photo seen below was taken by a club-goer who witnessed the aftermath of the fight near Revolution Bar:

Probert was taken to Lincoln County Hospital before being transferred 50 miles to a specialist brain unit at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield for an hour-long operation to remove the hammer. He is said to be in stable condition.
22-year-old Kris Bradley is being charged with attempted murder for the alleged assault.
“There are some absolute scum bags on this earth Matthew Probert is the bravest strongest person I know!” Probert’s girlfriend, Elisha Davis, wrote on Facebook after the attack.
“Just to let everyone know Matthew Probert seems to be making a good recovery, for anyone asking about visiting, hospital staff and family request no visitors for the time being but will let everyone know when he is well enough!”
A claw hammer. A freaking claw hammer man. Where does one even get a claw hammer from? Was he out clubbing with the claw hammer? Did he have it stuck in his carpenter pants? What the heck was this loon thinking?!?
