Man remains in coma after vicious attack

The 3-D scans and X-rays show in horrific detail how close one Sydney man came to being savagely bashed to death in a random robbery.

The 34-year-old, from Hurstville in Sydney's south, was attacked during his morning walk on Sunday and left for dead in Maher Lane.

He was found by a passer-by, and after three hours of emergency surgery is in an induced coma in St George Hospital.

The doctors are still unsure whether he'll recover.

On Tuesday, St George Hospital neurosurgeon Dr Saeed Kohan showed reporters the images of the man's skull, crushed at his right temple with a 15cm fracture running towards the back of his head.

The blow from a blunt object shattered his temple and eye socket, fractured his skull in numerous places, as well as causing a blood clot beneath the wound and bleeding and swelling of the brain.
