TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (307)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of The Telegraph (from Tuesday, February 8; link good at time of posting):
A man who attended an illegal cockfight has died after being stabbed in the leg by a bird that had a knife attach to it.

Jose Luis Ochoa, 35, of Lamont, California, was declared dead at a hospital about two hours after he was injured in Tulare County on Jan. 30, the Kern County coroner said.

An autopsy concluded Ochoa died of an accidental "sharp force injury" to his right calf.

Ray Pruitt, Sheriff spokesman, said it was unclear if a delay in seeking medical attention contributed to Ochoa's death.


Ochoa and the other spectators fled when authorities arrived at the scene of the fight, [Sgt. Martin] King told the newspaper. Police found five dead roosters and other evidence of cockfighting at the location, he said.
