"Before I saw anything, I had been king hit with a glass, didn't even know why or who it was," he said.

"After getting hit I stumbled back after the impact, dropped to my knees.

"An off-duty nurse held my head but then instantly I could hear and feel people fighting around me so I told the off-duty nurse to move me in the middle of the road away from the violance."
