Builder pierced through head by 6ft pole miraculously cheats death

A 24-year-old construction worker survived after a 6-foot metal bar fell from above and pierced his head, doctors said Friday.

Luiz Alexandre Essinger, chief of staff at Rio de Janeiro’s Miguel Couto Hospital, said doctors successfully withdrew the iron bar from Eduardo Leite’s skull during a five-hour surgery.

‘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.’ Essinger said. He said Leite was conscious when he arrived at the hospital and told him what had happened and that Leite was lucid and showed no negative consequences after the operation.

‘Today, he continues well, with few complaints for a five-hour-long surgery,’ Essinger said. ‘He says he feels little pain.’
