Gay Man Thrown from Bridge for Rejecting Sexual Advances in AustraliaJanuary 06, 2017 15:37
In a shocking incident, a gay man was thrown off a bridge in the Australian state of Queensland.
According to the officials, the man was found with a broken neck, back and ribs. The husband of the man stated that he was being forced by another married man for sexual advances and when he rejected him, he threw him off the bridge.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, "the victim Joth Wilson, was found in a mangled state by his 33-year-old husband Maioha Tokotaua under a train bridge in Gladstone, Queensland."
A medical report of the victim said that he has sustained critical injuries including a brain haemorrhage. The report also stated that Wilson's spinal cord was also damaged due to which he will be never able to walk again. Moreover, doctors added that Wilson also had third-degree burn marks on his body as if someone tried to set him ablaze.
The victim’s husband told the investigators that the married man feared that Wilson might tell his family about the sexual favours so he tried to kill him.
“I found him after two hours, on the train tracks. He looked mangle,” said Wilson’s husband Tokotaua, who rushed him to a hospital in Brisbane.
“There were these guys who had been harassing us for some time after one of them, who is married with children, made an advance that Joth rejected,” Tokotaua said.
“There's no money involved, no drugs, no debt, there's just no motive for the attack other than they were intimidated that we might tell their families,” he added.
“We are trying to work out the circumstances as to him being at the bottom of the bridge. The investigation of a third party being involved is still being investigated,” said investigators. The victim remains on life support system.
