Eduardo Leite was pieced in the brain by a 6-foot metal pole – and lived
PICTURE of the day features the head of 24-year-old Eduardo Leite, a builder in Brazil. He was on site when a 6-foot metal bar fell and hit him in the head. The pole passed though his hard hat and into his head. He did not lose consciousness until he was put under for an operation to remove it.
Says Luiz Alexandre Essinger, chief of staff at Rio de Janeiro’s Miguel Couto Hospital:
“He was taken to the operating room, his skull was opened, they examined the brain and the surgeon decided to pull the metal bar out from the front in the same direction it entered the brain…Today, he continues well, with few complaints for a five-hour-long surgery..He says he feels little pain.”
Well, he massive amount of painkillers must help with that.
He is expected to make a good recovery.
