May he be given the strength he needs to recover and convalesce. I pray that his medical team are able to help him, and I hope that each day finds him stronger than the last.

This is the equivalent of attempted murder. I certainly hope there is CCTV from somewhere nearby which can assist the NYPD in apprehending the monster who did it. What has happened to our society? Who can do such a horrible thing and not let that weigh on your conscience? I send positive well wishes to the injured man in good faith that he recovers soon.
