LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Identified only as Mr. Ho, the patient was dismantling his property in Leye County, Guangxi Province, when a large metal bar fell from above. Ho was impaled on the right side of his forehead and exited through the left side of his jaw.

Ho miraculously survived his dramatic injury. Following successful emergency surgery at a nearby hospital, he's expected to resume a normal life once more.

Paramedics were called to treat Mr Ho after a thick metal bar impaled the right side of his forehead

Paramedics were called to treat Mr Ho after a thick metal bar impaled the right side of his forehead and exited through the left side of his jaw while he was carrying out DIY work at his former home.


Paramedics called to treat Ho were shocked to discover the nature of his gruesome injury. They were surprised that not only was he not only alive, but also fully conscious and relatively lucid.

Rushed to the nearby Leye County Hospital, doctors were forced to call in firefighters with specialist cutting equipment to remove the bulk of the metal bar.
 
They were then able to transfer him to a larger hospital where complex emergency surgery was carried out to remove the section of metal still embedded deep inside his head.

X-rays taken before surgery showed how the solid metal bar, which was at least an inch thick, passed

X-rays taken before surgery showed how the solid metal bar, which was at least an inch thick, passed through the right side of his forehead and behind his left eye socket.


Ho is now recovering well and is considered to be out of danger.

Had the bar entered at a fractionally different angle, it would have almost certainly penetrated Ho's brain or eyeball, causing serious injury or death.

Other people in China were unable to escape similar freak accidents. Elsewhere in southern China, a driver chatting on her mobile phone decapitated her mother in a freak accident when she smashed into a motorway crash barrier.

The horrified girl watched as the barrier entered through the grille of her car, passed through the dashboard and then went straight into her mother's head as she sat in the front passenger seat.

"The car was impaled on the barrier prong like a kebab... It hit the poor woman straight in the head at very high speed. She didn't have a chance," one witness said.

Mr Ho, 50, survived his dramatic injury. Following successful emergency surgery at nearby Leigh County Hospital (pictured), he is now expected to make a full recovery.


Police say that the 68-year-old victim died instantly in the crash in Chongqing city in south-west China.
