The freak accident occurred when the 61-year-old butcher, who worked in the Sheung Shui Slaughterhouse on the city’s northern outskirts  was knocked to the ground by the struggling pig and sustained a wound from a 40 centimeter meat cleaver.

The butcher was getting ready to kill the pig, which he had already shot with an electric stun gun. But it had unexpectedly regained consciousness and knocked him over.
