Man laughs when up­set

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

A MAN whose skull was frac­tured in a hor­rific at­tack suf­fers “patho­log­i­cal laugh­ter” as a re­sult – gig­gling when he is up­set.

Paul Pugh, 37, was in a coma for two months af­ter be­ing kicked in the head in the 2007 at­tack by four men who were later jailed.

When doc­tors told him the ex­tent of his in­juries he burst out laugh­ing. Paul of Am­man­ford near Swansea said: “I was cry­ing, but it came out as laugh­ter.”

The con­di­tion has fi­nally been di­ag­nosed years later.
