In the clip, Petrescu exchanges words with a passing speedboat carrying several burly men who are allegedly drunk.
The speedboat circles back to their position and a bald man is seen throwing something which is heard smashing.
Petrescu then films broken glass on the deck before turning the camera on his bleeding face.
He explained on social media: “Yesterday evening, we were on a boat trip on Lake Trei Iezere with a group of German ornithologists.
“A speedboat appeared, apparently driven by a group of drunk guys who thundered past and caused a wave that nearly knocked us out of our chairs.”
“I made a gesture for them to stop, but no chance. They turned around and passed us, swearing and insulting us.
“After a verbal exchange where I wished them ‘good luck’, they did it again and circled back to our boat.”
“I started filming and the rest I seen in the video and photos I posted.
“The glass smashed and caused two deep wounds. My clients were shocked at the sight of blood pouring down my face, thinking I lost an eye.”
According to local media, a 43-year-old man from Arges County was identified by the local police and an investigation is now underway.
