He explained on social media: ‘Yesterday evening, we were on a boat trip on Lake Trei Lezere with a group of German ornithologists.

‘A speedboat appeared, apparently driven by a group of drunk guys who thundered past and caused a wave that nearly knocked us out of our chairs.’

‘I made a gesture for them to stop, but no chance. They turned around and passed us, swearing and insulting us.

According to local media, a 43-year-old man from Arges County was identified by local police and an investigation is now underway

‘After a verbal exchange where I wished them “Good luck”, they did it again and circled back to our boat. 

‘The glass smashed and caused two deep wounds. My clients were shocked at the sight of blood pouring down my face, thinking I lost an eye.’
