Madina Lake Bassist Hospitalised

MADINA LAKE star MATTHEW LEONE is in a serious condition in hospital after he was allegedly attacked as he attempted to break up a violent domestic dispute between two strangers.
The bassist was reportedly beaten unconscious during the incident in Chicago, Illinois after he spotted a couple locked in a vicious argument on the street and stepped in to help the unnamed woman.
Leone suffered severe head injuries and has undergone a life-saving operation in hospital to remove part of his skull and reduce swelling on his brain, according to his twin brother, Madina Lake frontman Nathan Leone.
In a post on the band's official blog, Nathan writes, "I'm afraid I have some of the worst news that has ever hit our lives... A few nights ago, Matthew walked from my apartment... down the street to meet a friend for a drink. Half way there he saw a man severely beating his wife. Being the most amazing, strong, heroic and incredible person I know... even though the guy was twice his size, Matthew intervened.
"He managed to subdue this guy for a second and... called the cops... as he did so the guy jumped him from behind and beat him.
This guy did things I can't even type. Afterwards, he and his beaten wife left Matthew unconscious on the street.
"Matthew is in the hospital with a third of his skull removed as we wait for the swelling in his brain to go down. I'd rather not share any additional information at this time besides the fact that he acted as a hero... and is paying a horrific price....
"We don't know enough yet details about how that will develop... but it has shocked, stunned, disgusted our best friends, family and band."
No further details about Matthew's condition were known as WENN went to press.
