Boy Survives Impalement

6-year-old Mihir Kumar of Ranchi, India was celebrating Holi when he slipped and fell off the roof he was dancing on. He fell on an iron rod, which pierced his body through the ribs from one side to the other! Mihir was rushed to the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences, where he underwent three hours of surgery to remove the rod.
He is now recovering in hospital.

Dr Sandeep Agarwal, one of the three surgeons to operate on the boy, said he had miraculously escaped major internal injuries.

Geez, Indian kids these days... They just can't wait another 10 years to do something stupid like dancing on a roof top like kids in America.

Gah... I'm a lil sensitive to the suffering of others and hate it when theres no warning before tossing up gory a picture like this. :( Just because theres no blood showing, dosn't mean its not horrible.
