THE victim of a Saturday night bashing in Warrnambool remains in a serious but stable condition at The Alfred hospital.
The 45-year-old Warrnambool man suffered life-threatening head injuries with most of the bones in his face shattered.
Fears for the man’s life prompted police to close Verdon Street until about noon on Sunday, when his condition improved from critical to serious.
A spokesman for The Alfred yesterday told The Standard the man remained serious but stable.
Meanwhile, the Koroit man who plunged over the rim of Tower Hill on Saturday has started physical rehabilitation at The Alfred.
The 55-year-old farmer shattered several vertebrae in his lower neck and upper back, but escaped the crash without head injury or permanent damage.
The man was driving along Lake View Road when he left the road in wet conditions and veered over the embankment.
