Gentleman in New Orleans Loses Chunk of Arm in Possible Zombie Attack


Boing Boing Gentleman in New Orleans Loses Chunk of Arm in Possible Zombie Attack The headline is a keeper: “Metairie man says stranger chewed, swallowed after taking bite out of his arm.” The story is horrible, but more frightening still, it suggests the imminent threat of a worsening zombie onslaught. Lancellotti said he tried to defend himself with a garden rake. As the men struggled over the rake, the stranger bent over and bit Lancellotti on his right forearm, the report said. Lancellotti’s flesh ripped away as he fell to the ground. The man then got on top of Lancellotti and began choking him, the report said. It was then that neighbor Chantal Lorio, a podiatrist and director of the Wound Center at East Jefferson General Hospital, came out to check on Lancellotti. Lorio said Monday that she first thought Lancellotti was having a heart attack and the other man was trying to help him.
 The stranger was still gripping Lancellotti as Lorio noticed her neighbor was lying in a pool of blood. She didn’t learn what happened until she began dressing the wound — with the stranger still clutching her neighbor’s shirt.
 “He said, ‘He bit my arm, chewed the flesh and swallowed it in front of me,’ ” Lorio recalled. She said the bite measured almost 3 by 1 1/2 inches, and was less than 1/4-inch deep.
