Man with knife in back for 3 years suing hospital, doctors


A Northwest Territories man who had an eight-centimetre knife in his back for three years after a stabbing is now suing the Stanton Territorial Hospital, the Sahtu Health Authority and a team of doctors for negligence.

Billy John McNeely was stabbed repeatedly in the back, neck and shoulder in Fort Good Hope, N.W.T., in 2010.

In 2013, after several trips to the hospital for back pain, it was discovered the knife blade from the stabbing was still in McNeely's back.

He is asking for more than $110,000 in damages for loss of income and quality of life.
