Brooklyn Man Dies After Cutting Arm on Broken Bottle

Broken beer bottles sit in a cage after participants took part in "Glassphemy!", a project from artist and developer David Belt, on May 20, 2010, in Brooklyn, New York.

At about 4 a.m. on Saturday, Miguel Jiminez and a friend were thrown out of a Flatbush Avenue restaurant near Beverley Road, prompting a physical fight between the two. After taking a punch, Jiminez "fell onto a sidewalk littered with broken bottles and slashed his right bicep open," according to the New York Post. Instead of stopping to tend to the injury, Jiminez started chasing after his buddy. He eventually collapsed and was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he died from blood loss and became yet another argument against toughing it out.
