Stuck with CRIMINAL LAW, is this transferred malice?!?Watch
I'm completely stuck on my criminal law assignment, basically the question is based on ASSAULT.
An incident has happened where A has slapped B who is intoxicated, he's fallen and broke his glasses and a piece has gone into A's eye leaving her permanently blind.
Is this transferred malice? If not could anyone direct me in the right direction please?
Any help in advance is greatly appreciated!

It's possibly assault occasioning X harm
I didn't think it was transferred malice, I know that A is liable for battery on B but wasn't sure about the glass in eye issue.
I'm just guna kinda ignore that and say he can't be liable I think... Because it seems a simple karma issue haha!
If the glass went into B's eye then A would ofc be liable of gbh or abh, but it went into her own eye. I think they're trying to catch us out as many of the class are talking about transferred malice and I didn't think it was because there's no third party for the intent to transfer over to.
Thanks for all your help guys!
