A son of a Tongan family in Auckland is fighting for his life in hospital after he was allegedly knifed in a party last night in Manurewa.
‘Ofa Kaifa told Kaniva his son Tali’eiki received five stab wounds, three were inflicted in his back and two in his ribs.
One of the stab wounds showed the knife almost punctured his lung, he said.
He said it appeared the knife was short, something he believed, it saved his son’s life.
‘Ofa said his son mostly sleeps all day today.
It is believed Tali’eiki was having a party with friends before the alleged attack.
‘Ofa said Police were still trying to piece together events surrounding the incidents.
He took to Facebook this morning and shared photos taken of his son in hospital.
He wrote that he wished he could share his son’s pain.
He prayed that Almighty God gave his son calmness and serenity.
His post on Facebook has shocked friends and relatives.
