A 57 year-old woman in central China miraculously survived after having a pair of scissors lodged in her head at home. Interestingly, the woman took bus all the way to hospital on her own to get treatment, according to reports.
The incident took place in Hubei province when Shen Xiaoying was harvesting Chinese mahogany leaves on her farm using a bamboo pole with a pair of scissors attached to the end, when the pole snapped; sending the scissors plummeting down straight into her skull.
Despite the t********* accident, Shen Xiaoying managed to stay calm and opted to take a public bus on her own from her village in Hubei province to a hospital in Xiangyang city in the same province, Shanghaiist quotes local media.
The woman said she felt no pain, only some numbness in her head, the report said. The trip from her home to the hospital reportedly took an hour.
Local media reported, the scissors were barely 2-3 millimetres from her brain and embedded at an angle. Doctors believe if the scissors had pierced through vertically, the woman could have been left paralysed.
