A 17-year old Indian girl recently fell off a building under construction and got pierced through by three metal rods used to reinforce concrete. Miraculously, she survived.
According to local reports, the girl was on the roof of the building when she fell and got impaled. It took workers around 10 hours to cut the metals to free the girl, without removing the parts that pierced her.
An ambulance then rushed her to the Ruban Palitputra Hospital in Patna, North East India, where it took another 5 hours for surgeons to successfully remove the metal rods from her body.
Incredibly, the rods missed all the vital organs in their path, and so the surgery was declared a resounding success.
She is now in stable condition.
