Doctors at the Chulalongkorn Hospital here removed a 60-cm-long sword that had been thrust through the nose cavity of a teenage boy and exited near his left ear, news reports said Wednesday.
Ronnachai Tiemsanguan, 16, was said to be in a stable condition after the sword's removal from his face in an operation that took five hours and 10 minutes Tuesday, reported the Thai Rath newspaper.
AdvertisementRonnachai received his sword wound Saturday when "enemies" attacked him after attending a music concert in Sakeow city, 160 km east of here.
Two provincial hospitals refused to remove the sword, citing lack of proper equipment and expertise, forcing Rannachai's parents to transfer him to Chulalongklorn Hospital.
