The massive Fijian was sprawled out on the ground, blood soaking through three towels pressed to his left arm.

First sight of the large open wound – tendons and muscle mangled into a bloody jigsaw – made Corona del Mar resident Tom Rolfes turn his head in disgust.

“We need to get him an arm surgeon,” Rolfes said.
