Three years ago, Conor was ringing in the New Year with his friends at a pub when the terrible event occurred. Conor was assaulted by a man in an unprovoked attack, who struck Conor with a punch and kick to the head.
The two encountered each other in the restroom and engaged in friendly conversation while washing their hands. They had never met each other before this. And then things took a tragic turn.
All of a sudden, the man pushed Conor backwards and hit him with his elbow, causing Conor to fall to the ground. In a shocking act, the man then kicked Conor in the head before leaving the scene. Conor was unresponsive with a large gash on his head. The unexpected attack left Conor with severe injuries, including a traumatic brain injury.
