Angry about poor Christmas party: riot

One seriously injured 39-year-old man was the result of a muffed Christmas party which was organized by a tinsmith enterprise in Carinthias capital Klagenfurt.

The guests were so unhappy and disappointed about the boring event that they started to riot and a rude free for all. One man was hit by fists of his opponent several times and had to be brought to hospital. Only the police was able to calm down the flared tempers.
