Stab Wound

A kind of penetrating trauma, a stab wound occurs by a thrust of the skin. It usually occurs in the form of a knife but any sharp-pointed objects may cause a stab wound. Damage caused by stab wounds are usually deeper rather than wide causing not just external damage but more importantly, internal injuries. Internal injuries caused by a stab wound usually follow the path the weapon took internally. The abdomen is the most common site for stab wounds, where plenty of internal organs are found.
