His family released shocking pictures of him after the robbers left him for dead. Surgeons operated for 6 hours to treat the scalp wound but that's not where complications end, he suffered a bleeding on his brain and his recovery is still hard to see.
Jackie Perry, his daughter, told Sky News: "I couldn't believe it when I saw him. He was unrecognizable. I have been crying in the night thinking about him. The family have been sleeping with their mobile phones next to the pillow because we are just so worried about him. Who could do this to anybody let alone an 80-year-old man."
The family managed to raise a little bit of money through online crowd funding.
