Just as curiosity for my fellow Tumblrs, yesterday, in a construction site in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a worker was hit by a steel bar, falling from 5 floors above him. Not only the dude didn’t die but he didn’t even faint. He was rescued by paramedics that cut the bar to allow proper transportation and got to the hospital talking to the doctors, explaining what happened. After a surgery to extract the spear that crossed his skull and the plastic helmet he was wearing, the worker is waiting under observation to go home with no harm other than the injure. According to the doctors, a tiny fraction of an inch would have killed the victim. Since another one of this will only occur in few centuries, I thought it would make sense to share, although I am not much of a news blogger. For those of you who are doctors, click the picture to go to the original source and see more X-rays.
