It's REAL: Russian doctors confirm picture of mugging victim with a six-inch knife in her back is genuine
An extraordinary picture that has gone around the world of a knife plunged into the back of a woman mugging victim is genuine, it was revealed by doctors in Moscow tonight.
Julia Popova, 22, was stabbed by a mugger as she walked home from work one day last autumn - but she was so traumatised by the attack that she walked home without realising the knife was embedded in her, just a fraction of an inch from her spinal cord.
In the image, blood is shown gushing from the wound as surgeons stare in awe, apparently preparing to operate to remove the six-inch blade.
'This is our photo, she was here,' a senior doctor at the hospital in the north of the Russian capital told the MailOnline last night.
