‚ÄúAt first I did not feel any pain. When I realized I was bleeding, I thought the blood was from my cheek. I did not think that my eye had been cut. I did not think it was serious until the doctors looked at it. The cornea of my right eye itself had been cut. I was likely to lose my eye if it was not operated on in 24 hours,‚ÄĚ said Nubian Li.
