THAI NGUYEN (VNS) — Doctors from Thai Nguyen Province's General Hospital have saved a 13-year-old boy who fell out of fruit tree on Sunday and impaled himself on a small bamboo tree.
The bamboo had been chopped down by someone, leaving a sharp point.
When the Mong-ethnic-minority boy from northern mountainous Bac Kan Province's Luong Thuong Commune fell, the bamboo drove through his body from the left part of his belly to the right part of his chest.
Doctors from Thai Nguyen General Hospital said that the accident had not damaged his heart or major blood vessels. The boy is now in a stable condition, and is expected to leave the hospital within 10 days. — VNS
