Thugs attack my wife in Managua
We had a bad experience crossing the street in Managua in front of Pizza Hut. Two big men in their early 30's jumped my wife from behind and tried to take her purse. They were so big that they broke her leg in two places. When I heard her scream I turned around and saw them on top of her and I charged them. Fortunately they didn't have any weapons and they ran off. The police came by on a motorcycle and slowed down to see what happened and then sped off. A passing ambulance took us to Vivian Pellas Hospital and my wife had a rod implanted in her tibia and two screws to hold it in place. They did a great job. We don't know yet what the soft tissue damage is going to be but it is going to be a long healing process. I lived in Guatemala for 10 winters and Honduras for three and thought that Nicaragua was going to be safer.
