THOMAS COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - A Thomas County man is recovering from a life-threatening injury after being stabbed.

Thomas County Chief Investigator Tim Watkins says they responded to Archbold Hospital on Sunday in reference to a man who had a collapsed lung from being stabbed.

The man told investigators he went to a funeral and then a party and got stabbed in the back during a fight, but they say that story doesn't add up.

GBI agents were called to assist with the case.

Investigators are still working to figure out how the man was injured.
