Paramedics in China were called to treat a man after a thick metal bar impaled his head while he was working on a DIY project of his home. Identified as Mr Ho, 50, the man was reportedly dismantling the property in the Guangxi Province in China when a steel rod fell from above.

Miraculously, he managed to survive the rod's impact, entering through the right side of his forehead and exiting through the left side of his jaw, sparing both brain and eyes, allowing him to remain awake and aware.

Paramedics rushed Mr Ho to the nearby Leye County Hospital, where doctors were forced to call in firefighters with specialist cutting equipment to remove the bulk of the metal bar.

Ho was then transferred a larger hospital where complex emergency surgery was carried out to remove the section of metal still embedded deep inside his head.

Amazingly, despite its dramatic appearance, the injury caused no lasting damage. Reports say that Ho's post-op diagnosis is excellent, that he is out of danger and is expected to make a full recovery.
