An acid attack victim allegedly took to social media to share a selfie saying the yobs that maimed him ‘should have killed him.’
In the widely shared photo, the man in his 20s can be seen smiling at the camera.

The victims are believed to be in non-life threatening conditions.
A new video, which also emerged yesterday, shows the victims frantically get out of their car and flail around in agony.
