Man gets pierced by steel rod, survives

This... is what I would classify as a "bad day."


This is from the Austria Times (I found it from the Tosh.O website).

Carpenter Lu Jiang, 43, is recovering after surviving this incredible accident where his body was pierced from top to bottom by a solid steel rod. He told docs he had been working on the second floor of a new building at Sichuan in South East China when he had slipped and fallen onto the steel bar protruding from a concrete slab. It had pierced his body just below the waist and came out on the other side of his body by his neck.

He said: "I hit the ground pretty hard but my first thought was 'God I am still alive'. I could see my hands and my feet and nothing seemed to be broken but then I found I couldn't move and I thought my back was broken. It was then that I felt a steel rod coming out of my back - and then realised it had gone in through the bottom of my body. "

I was terrified - everyone was looking at me and some had covered their faces in horror - I was pinned like that for more than an hour until emergency services could cut me free."


Lu is the luckiest son of a gun on earth or unluckiest... I really can't decide. And now, I'm going to go vomit.
