The rod pierced his body near the scrotum and pierced through all the way to his neck. He was admitted to JJ Hospital around 2 a.m. on March 9 and operated on around noon. He was then moved nearly 250 km away to JJ hospital, Mumbai. A 33-year-old construction worker survived after being impaled on a 1.30-metre iron rod that went vertically through his torso, but did not pierce his urinary bladder, kidney or heart, or major blood vessels. “We carried out a CT scan and sonography to understand the trajectory of the rod,” said Noaman Shaikh from the general surgery department of JJ Hospital.
