During a visit to the accurately named Nashville Nightmare on Friday, a woman stabbed her friend in the arm after a random man with a skull face handed her a knife and told her she should get back at him for teasing her.
The friend, Jay Yochim, 29, was at the haunted house complex with the woman and a few other pals. He told The Tennessean that after visiting several attractions, they stood in a courtyard area and started talking with a man they believed was an employee. They all were playfully teasing each other, and after Yochim made a joke, the man gave his friend a knife and suggested she stab him. "Keep in mind, we'd been chased by chainsaws, holding other weapons, all kinds of stuff all night, and it was all fake," he said. "So she stabs me with it, and everything got really black."
Blood began to gush from Yochim's arm, and the man who handed his friend the knife started to freak out, telling the group he had no idea the knife was "that sharp." Yochim passed out, and when he woke up, his friend was crying. "No one wants to stab their friend," the extremely understanding Yochim told The Tennessean. "I've been stabbed and I still can't even imagine what it's like to accidentally hurt your friend like that."
While Yochim did need nine stitches, doctors say he was lucky because the knife did not hit any major arteries, tendons, or bones. Nashville Nightmare told The Tennessean it believes an employee was involved, and he has been placed on leave while the bizarre incident is being investigated. Catherine Garcia
