Vietnamese man survives being pierced by crowbar after fall

Friday, June 05, 2020, 16:37 GMT+7

A man has miraculously survived a long crowbar piercing his body after a home accident in the north-central Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa on Thursday.

Q.V.L., 50, was digging a well at his home in Xuan Khang Commune, Nhu Thanh District when he slipped and fell onto a crowbar.

He was rushed to a district hospital before being transferred to Thanh Hoa Province General Hospital in a critical condition, with the iron tool piercing his torso.

The meter-long crowbar was still attached to the man’s body at the time of hospitalization.

A team of ten surgeons and nurses rushed to perform a grueling surgery to open his chest to remove the tool.

The 90-minute operation ended successfully with the crowbar safely removed from the man’s chest and doctors managing to stop his bleeding and suture his wound.

L. has overcome the critical condition and is recovering at the provincial infirmary, doctors said.
