A serious homophobic attack denounced the family of a 52-year-old man who was burned in a boiling water bathtub in Porvenir, the capital of Tierra del Fuego.
According to his niece, Erin Ruiz, the episode of violence caused burns to internal organs.
"They do not deserve what they did, and what they did was terrible, we'll get to the last, we want prison, we want them to pay for what they did. Because, although he can get to rescue, in his condition he will remain with consequences, "he said.
Porvenir's chief prosecutor, Wendoline Acuña, said they were collecting information about the attackers in order to sue them.
Meanwhile, the victim, José David Muñoz Vargas, 52 years old, remains hospitalized in the critical unit of the Punta Arenas Clinical Hospital of Magallanes, waiting for his transfer to Santiago.
"He's in a state of gravity. In fact, the type of burn, through a technical index, is treated as a severe burn. In fact, it is the pathology of GES, so it was determined to move to Santiago, "explained surgeon Claudio Quintana.
Meanwhile, the medical staff added that the patient remains with 20% of his burned body, but the sum of other complications keeps it in a state of gravity.
