Boy, 11, gets his Nuts impaled on 5cm-long stick after falling from tree (graphic photos)



An 11-year-old boy had to have a 5cm-long stick removed from his scrotum after he was impaled when he fell from a tree.



The boy, from Makassar in Indonesia, was taken to hospital four hours after the gruesome accident.



Doctors said that the stick was just millimetres away from tearing through his testicles.

The boy was given heavy antibiotics as the sharp object was removed. He was also given a tetanus vaccine to prevent an infection from developing.



Photos shared online and X-rays showed how the stick pierced him before crashing into his pubic bone.



After the stick was removed a Penrose drain - a small pipe that removes excess fluid - was fed back into the wound.
