Plumber still fighting for life after acid attack

GEORGE TOWN - The 47-year-old plumber who was allegedly splashed with acid by his Thai wife last Tuesday is still at the Penang Hospital's intensive care unit.

Penang Hospital Visitors Board chairman Lim Thoon Deong said the man suffered about 30 per cent burns on his face, arms and upper body.

"He faces the possibility of going blind.

"His condition is reported to be stable but he's not out of danger," Lim said yesterday after visiting the victim.

When contacted, George Town OCPD Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said police were still looking for the wife to help in investigations.

It was reported that the incident happened at around 6.30am last Tuesday, when the plumber was sleeping at his house.

The 29-year-old wife fled in his car.
