Michael Adebowale, who butchered Fusilier Lee Rigby, lunged at a consultant at the Royal London Hospital after being asked to sign a patient consent form.
The doctor handed him his own silver pen despite being warned Adebowale, below, could use it as a weapon.The killer had been taken to be treated for an infection to his leg.
The male doctor’s eyesight was only saved by the prompt action of prison officers. Two guards, who were handcuffed to the killer by short chains, yanked Adebowale’s arm away with just inches to spare.
A source revealed: “The doctor came within a whisker of losing an eye. He had been told not to give Adebowale a pen because it was feared he would use it as a weapon.
“However, he ignored the advice and insisted he needed patient consent before any medical intervention.
“Adebowale only had about four inches of movement due to being restrained by the chains. But as soon as he got the pen he launched himself at the doctor like a madman.”
This is what a death cult looks like. It never stops killing. The infected turn into madmen obsessed with taking another life for the greater glory of Islam.
