South African Triathlete Attacked By Three Men Who Try To Cut His Legs Off With Chainsaw – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A South African triathlete was attacked with a chainsaw on Tuesday near the University of KwaZulu-Natal, but miraculously managed to escape with non-life threatening injuries. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to BBC, Mhlengi Gwala was on a training ride when three men attacked him with the saw. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He thought they were coming to rob him, stopped and gave them his phone but they didn’t want his phone, didn’t want his watch or bicycle,” Gwala’s training partner, Sandile Shange, said of the incident. “They dragged him to the side of the road to some bushes, took a saw and starting cutting his legs.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “They kept on cutting and when they got to the bone because the saw was not that sharp, the saw got stuck. When they saw it was getting stuck they started on the other leg,” Shange continued. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the doctors said they would be able to save Gwala’s legs, adding that he will eventually be able to walk and run again, the recovery process will be long. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident is being investigated as an attempted murder case, however, there is no word on potential motive.
