Facial Injury caused by a Knife

This teenager is lucky to be alive - he has a 20cm long knife embedded 7cm into his face!

The stunning X-ray image shows a knife stuck deep inside a Chinese teenager's cheek.

The 13-year-old tripped and fell while peeling an apple, jamming himself in the face with a nearly 8-inch knife.

His father recalled "He was walking to the sofa while peeling the apple. Suddenly he slipped down and his face hit onto the sharp knife. I dared not pull out the knife as my son was screaming."

Amazingly, the blade did not strike the boy's brain and doctors were able to remove the knife, expecting him to make a full recovery.
