A man who tried to break up an April 17 bar brawl that left one man stabbed to death and five others injured has learned that being a Good Samaritan comes at a high price.
Guy DiBona, 44, was one of the Fishtales patrons who tried to subdue Brian Krebs. Police say that Krebs, 38, fatally knifed Jimmy Pagano in the neck and slashed five other Fishtales customers who tried to stop him -- including DiBona.
Krebs, DiBona recently told New Times, stabbed him in his upper thigh. DiBona almost died from blood loss. But the surgery DiBona needed to save his life wound up putting him $20,000 in debt, because he doesn't have health insurance.
Now he's asking the community to help raise money for his medical bills.
If you're interested in donating money for DiBona's care, a benefit is planned for July 10 at Blue Martini's Sunrise Boulevard location.
