Chicago man out of coma after being attacked with bowling ball
A Chicago man is out of a medically-induced coma after he was attacked with a bowling ball during a fight last week.
Damante Williams and an unidentified suspect got into a fight at a west suburban Cicero bowling alley Wednesday when the other man threw the ball at Williams, hitting him in the head and “causing severe injury,” according to police.
Williams was taken to Loyola University Medical Center and placed into a medically-induced coma, which he came out of Friday, his mother told CBS Chicago.
“It’s offensive, it’s hurtful, it’s cruel, and to know someone you love, you can’t be desensitized to the fact that I saw a portion of my son bent over with blood coming down his face,” Tamekio Williams told the station of the video of the attack, which was posted on Facebook. “This is my only child. It feels like labor, because I was in labor with him for three days. It feels like labor all over again, but worse.”
She said the altercation began when her son bumped into the other man.
Police released a surveillance photo of the suspect, who they said drove off in a 2018 Range Rover with Wisconsin license plate AFS3400.
