Dhungutti man, Dion Marr Jnr., 38, has had his left eye removed following an alleged one-punch attack at a taxi rank in Coffs Harbour on the New South Wales north coast.
Marr's family have started a Go Fund Me campaign to help raise money to pay for medical costs, rehabilitation and to help support his children. The campaign has so far raised $1,640 of a $5,000 target.
