Woman Attacked with Acid Is in Critical Condition

A 35-year-old woman was attacked in Sofia last night at about 18:30. The assault happened on "Alexander Stamboliyski" and "Konstantin Velichkov". 

The attacker spilled acid on the woman's head. She's been hospitalized with 24% of her head being covered in burns. Her neck and hands have also suffered damage. Currently, the victim isn't responsive. A second examination is yet to come, meaning that the doctors have yet to determine when the woman can go into surgery. The reasons for the crime as well as the criminal's identity are yet unknown. The exact kind of liquid used in the assault is also still to be identified. The woman had just locked the restaurant she works in and was heading for her car when the misfortunate attack happened.

This is not the first time Bulgaria has witnessed a similar crime. About a decade ago assault with acid was pretty much a "trend" and there was a news story about it almost every week. It is sad to see that such a horrific act has this newfound popularity. We at EUScoop wish the victim of yesterday's crime a speedy recovery and hope that attacks with acid remain in the past for good.
