Doctors in the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Phuoc have been able to rescue a man who had his neck seriously injured during a fight that broke out at a beer shop.
Nguyen Le Duong, 33, who resides in Phuoc Long Town, is now in recovery following his surgery on Saturday night, representatives of the Binh Phuoc General Hospital confirmed on Sunday.
Duong was unconscious and in a critical condition, with a 15cm-long slash wound causing serious blood loss in his neck, when he was rushed to the hospital on the weekend.
“It was a difficult case as the patient lost a lot of blood, forcing us to perform blood transfusion during the entire surgery,” Dr. Dang The Cuong, a member of the surgical team, said.

The operation ended successfully after one hour and a half, Cuong added.
Duong suffered the serious injury after he got into an argument, which quickly turned violent, with some men while he was drinking at a beer shop near his house, according to his wife, Tran Thi Thanh Thuy.
He was first taken to the medical center in Phuoc Long Town before being transferred to the general hospital due to the severity of his injury, Thuy said.
The family has reported the incident to local police.
