Numerous media reports have been released about an injury to an AMCF member at Winterfest Sydney Medieval Fair which contain inaccurate information. The AMCF would like to take this opportunity to adress the facts of the incident.

During the buhurt competition, Mitch Toohey, a fighter from the Victorian HMB club, the Western Wolves, took an axe blow to the side of his head that removed him from the round. He recieved immediate care from event medical staff, who in turn called the state ambulance service. He was taken to Westmead Hospital for further assessment and treatment. He is currently in a stable condition and is in good spirits.

Various reports have stated that his helmet was cracked, penetrated, or otherwise significantly compromised and/or that the weapon had got inside his helmet to deliver direct damage to the skull. These details are categorically untrue.
AMCF accredited marshals were overseeing the round and saw the blow land on the side of the helmet. Inspection after the incident showed the helmet has no cracks or significant damage present from the blow.

The AMCF enforces strict rules and regulations in line with the HMBIA and modern contact sport safety standards to ensure the maximum possible safety for our participants. Unfortunately, as in all contact sports, injuries cannot be entirely avoided. The AMCF would like to offer thier thanks to the medical professionals who have treated Mitch and wish him a speedy recovery.

Regards
President of the AMCF

Big thanks to the AMCF for helping to clear some of the loopy stories that were getting about. I’m all checked out of hospital now and well on track for 100% recovery, naturally just have to deal with a sore head haha

I recommend you send this as a media release to the major news outlets, and the VIC & QLD state governments. Then demand a correction.

Asking leading questions does not lead to clarity. Thanks for the update with actual facts. Wishing him well.

My thoughts and prays, are with you for a quick recovery

Best wishes to the fighter, and a speedy recovery.

Actual photo of the event according to the media 🙄

So true, every sport involves risks. So good to hear the actual truth.

Best of luck with his recovery mate .

Wishing Mitch a speedy recovery

Thanks for helping set this straight. Hoping this Toohey fellow is soon back at his best.

Well done Mitch! Theres nothing like making the news to raise interest and the profile of one of the best spectator sports going around😎 hope your back soon

How many medics where at the festival, I am hearing 1?

Glad he will be fine!

I got my information from the end of the rumor mill. They stated that it was a "purple monkey dishwasher"

Shared.

Hope you feel better Mitch

Get well soon!

If he was playing league or soccer nothing would have even been mentioned. The media almost never blows a story out of proportion.

shared

If this happened in NSW prepare to feel the full force of the Berejiklian Ban-hammer🔨

Seems people want to make it worse. Hope that he recovers quickly

Typical THE STORY is improved with lies to grab hysteria or attention.... we need real journos... these ones suck... FACT!

It’s Careflight themselves who have said the helmet was ‘penetrated’

What of the report that he was struck repeatedly in the head while he was down on the ground.
