An Indian construction worker miraculously survived being impaled by a seven-foot iron rod that skewered his skull The Sun.  reports that Mohammad Duddu, 24, was mixing cement at a construction site when the rod accidentally fell from the fourth floor, piercing the top of his head in Malad, Mumbai.

The iron didn’t just strike his skull, it pierced it and protruded out of the back of his skull. But, he didn’t die. The man was saved after doctors cut open the skull and pulled out the rod in a five-hour long surgery. But, it is not all such a happy ending as he has developed paralysis on the left side of his body. But doctors say he will fully recover in three months.

Dr Batuk Diyora, the neurosurgeon who led the team, said: “It is indeed a miracle that the man survived such an injury.

 “It was a tricky surgery but what helped saving him was the fact that the rod had pierced a noneloquent region of his brain, an area that has no easily discernible cognitive, motor, or sensory functions and didn’t damage the vital arteries that carry blood to the brain.

“The patient’s brain stem wasn’t damaged and the arteries carrying blood to the brain were also safe.

“The rod was sterilised to ensure there wasn’t an infection.”

According to the doctors, Duddu is likely to remain in hospital for at least two weeks.

Duddu’s friend who witnessed the shocking incident could not believe that Duddu survived. Pal Tanveer, 27, said:“He had joined work just 15 days ago and on the fateful day, he was working on the other side when we heard his screams.

“When we reached the spot we could not believe a rod had pierced through his skull. He was conscious and asking for help.

 “He is a strong lad, and we are just so elated that he survived this accident.”
