File this one away in WTF. A Toledo teen is fighting for his life in a hospital after a brawl. Yes, common enough, sadly. But this teen isn’t recovering from your standard gunshots or knife wounds. He was stabbed with a sword and beaten with nunchucks.

On Wednesday, 19 year-old Terrale Smith tangled with 22 year-old Thompson outside of an apartment building. According to Toldeo’s WTOL, Thompson was packing ninja gear. After the scuffle, Smith was stabbed and bleeding. He’s currently in a Toledo hospital and Thompson is in jail.
