A woman was left with a huge kitchen knife embedded in her eyebrow after she was allegedly attacked by her drunk husband.
Footage shows the unnamed victim moaning ‘oh my god, help me, it hurts’ as she lies with the knife still stuck in her blood-covered face.
Brazilian media reported she was attacked by her husband when he flew into a rage after she complained he had arrived home drunk.
He reportedly grabbed the kitchen knife as she was complaining and tried to stab her in the eye, missing and striking her in the eyebrow instead.
The couple’s neighbours called the police after hearing her cries for help.

The footage was shared on a WhatsApp group on Wednesday, but it was not immediately clear when the incident took place, or exactly where in Brazil.
A woman suffers domestic violence in Brazil every seven minutes, according to a study released by the government in 2015.
And a 2019/20 report by Georgetown’s Institute for Women, Peace and Security’s said nearly three-quarters of Brazilian women said they felt unsafe walking alone at night.
The report added estimates indicate only a quarter of domestic violence victims report the abuse because police often dismiss the cases or require women to recount their stories in open reception areas with no privacy.

On average 126 girls and women were raped every day in the country during 2020, according to Amnesty.
There were also over 119,546 cases of domestic violence resulting in physical injuries to women in the first six months of 2020, equivalent to an average of 664 cases per day.
The number was down on 2019, but was likely a result of under-reporting during the pandemic.
However, six states saw an increase in cases of physical injuries during the same period with Pará seeing the biggest jump with 2,674 cases, up nearly 50 per cent from the same period in 2019.
