A Chinese woman was rushed to hospital after her daughter saw her sitting under the stairs with a long knife stuck in her head.
57-year old Liu Yanya was impaled by the 11 cm knife after a fall in her home in Changchun, the capital of Jilin Province.
‘I heard a loud “pang” sound and when I ran out I found my mother sitting under the stairs with a long knife in head,’ her daughter Wang Xue recalled. ‘The blade had gone all the way in leaving only the black handle outside.’
Now to the more bizarre part: Yanya was still alert and calm as she arrived to the hospital with the knife still stuck in her head. ‘The more amazing thing is when the patient came in, she was still in a clear mind, and could walk and speak,’ added chief surgeon Sun Yang.
The blade was later removed from her skull but unfortunately, Yanya and her husband will have to sell their house to pay the medical bills.
