Thank goodness they werent seriously injured, but this could have turned out worse. Hopefully their company will do better with the girls' safety after this. This one incident should set as a reminder that there are crazies out there... fan or not.

The use of a saw makes this even worse. I wish them both luck and a very quick recovery.

Does the head area include Anna's face?

I can only imagine what the wotas would have done to Umeta if the injuries had been life-threatening or career-threatening... and he would have deserved it.

I've already said this in another article, but although it's awful that this even happened, at least the girls walked away from that with only injuries.

Wishing them a full and speedy recovery.
