The knife just missed my heart' - Man says after he was stabbed at McDonald’s by customer angry over not having enough sugar in his coffee



Edmund Pieters has revealed how he came close to dying over a fellow fast-food customer’s out-of-control demand for sugar.



According to Pieters he was quietly having a breakfast of cinnamon rolls and sweet tea at McDonalds in New York City on Tuesday, 21 January.







Pieters, 56, a former demolition worker on disability, said that on Tuesday he had just come from a doctor’s appointment on W. 35th St., where he gets his insulin and other medication to treat his diabetes — and stopped at the McDonald’s when he came within an inch of dying.



An argument erupted, with another customer angry over there not being enough sugar in his coffee.



“He was screaming at the manager, the people in back, everybody,” Pieters, who has two daughters and four grandchildren, told the Daily News.


“He was making a real scene.”


“He was arguing about sugar in his coffee,” Pieters said. “Of all things, he wanted four more sugars. He kept going back for sugar. What did he need with like 15 sugars?



“He drank the coffee and he’s yelling, ‘I’m not satisfied,’” he said. “And they refunded his money. It couldn’t be more than $1.39.”



Pieters said the security guard looked frightened.







“I could see it in her face. She was telling him, ‘you gotta go’,” he recounted. “I went up behind him because he was [pretending] like he was going to hit her. She was jumpy.
