The man, who is in his forties, is being kept in a drug-induced coma for the time being in the intensive care unit due to the life-threating injuries he suffered, a physician told Morgunbladid.

The artery in his neck ruptured causing heavy bleeding. The suspected assailant, also in his forties, was arrested at the scene and taken to custody.
