Ronald Poppo, the victim of face-eating “Miami zombie” Rudy Eugene is awake and alert at the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, doctors have confirmed to the Associated Press. Doctors also revealed that Poppo had two puncture wounds in his chest, suggesting that the police may have hit him with bullets when shooting at his attacker. Poppo was seen walking down a hospital corridor with two staff members supporting him, his face marred with scabs. Doctors said they would release a more thorough update of Poppo’s condition later Tuesday. The AP reports that he’s missing his nose, and both of his eye sockets are covered. Poppo has been at Jackson Memorial Hospital since he was attacked May 26 by Rudy Eugene, who gnawed at Poppo’s flesh for 18 minutes before he was shot dead by police. Eugene was suspected to be on drugs during the attack, though autopsy results are still pending.
