Man survives after 20ft pole plunges through his head in construction accident



A man survived after a 20ft metal pole pierced his brain when he fell from a building site.



The 24-year-old was working on the site in Ghaziabad, New Delhi, India, on July 31 when he stopped and looked up. Then a metal rod came hurtling down from the 20th floor towards him, plunging through his brain and out the back of his skull.



The unnamed man was rushed to Flores Hospital where half his skull had to be opened so the doctor could free the rod from his brain during four hours of surgery by senior neurosurgeon, Dr Abhinav Gupta.







Thankfully, there has been no additional damage to his brain but the left side of his body has been left paralysed.
