A man had to be resuscitated after being brutally beaten in a pub.
Etienne Bailey suffered numerous facial injuries after being attacked at the William Harvey Inn, Ashford last Thursday.
Two men attacked the 51-year-old at around 7.55 pm, the man was reportedly “repeatedly hit on the head with fire extinguishers which stunned him”.
A fundraiser set up to help him pay his bills and rent raised over £ 2,000.
A post on the page added that the men “continued the attack until more people intervened and the offenders fled the scene.”
Transferred from Church Road pub to William Harvey Hospital, the victim had to be resuscitated due to his injuries.
Mr. Bailey – known as Tiny to his friends – couldn’t breathe through his nose due to bleeding and a slit mouth meant he could only drink.
His head is believed to be fractured and scans have been sent for analysis.
Five days later, her eyes are still too swollen to open.
The victim, a popular face in the supermarket where he works, is expected to be unable to work for at least four weeks and a fundraiser is hoping to alleviate any financial problems this would cause.
So far £ 2,204 has been raised through the three-day-old Gofundme campaign which has already been shared over 2,000 times.
The police are now asking for information relating to the assault.
A police spokeswoman said, “Crime scene investigators have gathered forensic evidence from the scene. Officers are also examining CCTV footage of the incident. Investigations are ongoing.
