Post stabbing victim shares story of attack

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Post teen shares his near death experience with KCBD NewsChannel 11 just one day after he was stabbed multiple times in Post.

Monday morning, KCBD NewsChannel 11 broke the story of the stabbing incident. The victim, 19-year-old Hank Berkley, showed us his five stab wounds, including one that was only two inches from his heart.

Berkley describes the moment when he learned how serious this could have been. "The doctor said I had a hole in my lungs and any more closer and I could have been gone."

David Shelton, a family member, also shares his feelings on the situation. "When we got to the hospital, and we heard the severity of his wound, yeah, I broke down. It hurt because everybody will tell you, I do have some feelings for him. Yeah, I do care for him. It came as a shock to me. Especially how close he got."

Berkley's family says the Garza County Sheriff's Office is cutting the suspect a break and giving him preferential treatment.

The Sheriff's Department has not yet returned calls to KCBD NewsChannel 11.

NewsChannel 11 will continue to follow this story and will bring you the latest as it becomes available.
