Man With A Knife In His Skull Picked Up By Ambulance
Warning: Graphic Images
Paramedics in China picked up a man who had a knife embedded in his head.
Footage has been shared showing the moment medics in the Fuling District, in the country's municipality of Chongqing, came to the aid of a young man who had a long blade stuck in his skull.
Local police said the man, who remained extremely calm considering the circumstances, had been involved in a fight and was stabbed, according to local media.
Photographs of the man lying in a hospital bed have also been released, with his head having been shaved prior to undergoing surgery to remove the knife.
A spokesperson for the hospital told local news outlet Kandu that the operation, which was carried out yesterday (13 July), had been a success.
They said: "The young man is doing fine. He suffered an open fracture, but he was already very lucid yesterday [12 July]."
The Fuling District Public Security Bureau also confirmed that the folding knife
was jammed into the patient's head during an 'altercation'.
However, at the time of publication, it was unclear whether any suspects had been identified following the incident.
But this isn't the only bizarre case doctors have encountered of late.

A few weeks ago, a man who had been involved in a fight walked into Chaoyang People's Hospital in Central China's Hubei Province with a meat cleaver stuck in his forehead.
While several days earlier, a 21-year-old man from Mashan County in South China's Guangxi region was pictured waiting in a hospital's accident and emergency department after accidentally shooting himself in the chest with a 15-inch crossbow bolt.
Earlier this year, another man, Mr Duorijie, finally had a rusty knife removed from his head after 26 years.
The 76-year-old had been violently attacked and mugged in the 90s but had been unable to have it removed until recently.
Doctors at Shandong Qianfoshan Hospital in Jinan described the elderly man's case as nothing short of a 'miracle'.
His case came to the attention of doctors who were touring the countryside in March 2019.
Doctor Zhang Shuxiang was one of the medics who came across Mr Duorijie.
Speaking about the bizarre case, he said: "When we found him while on a medical tour of Qinghai, we learned that experts had decided on more conservative treatment, prescribing only painkillers. But his symptoms began [to get] increasingly severe and unbearable.
"Due to the limitations of local hospitals, we decided to bring him to Shandong for the best possible treatment."
