When a man walked into the Donalsonville emergency room with a knife stuck out of his back, it was not a halloween gag. Edward Earl Chambers viciously plunged to the hilt a 6" knife into the back of 47 year old Joseph Curls. The stabbing occurred sometime between 2 and 3:30 am Tuesday night.
The knife was plunged between his shoulder blades and missed his spine by the width of the knife blade. One would think a knife thrust 6" into his back should mean death, but miraculously resulted in a minor injury for Joseph Curls. He was kept overnight for observation.
