After a quarrel in India, a teenager was taken into the hospital with a motorcycle key.
The 19-year-old man from Maharashtra, India, was taken to the hospital nearly two inches into the head of his key and worked under the knife for three and a half hours.
His terrible injury was the result of quarrels in the village of Ghodegaon in Ahmednagar.
A neurosurgeon says that if a young person has internal bleeding, he may die.
Dr Shailendra Uttamrao Markad said: ‘On April 18 at around 11 am, in a brawl at his village, the teenager was assaulted by someone and a bike key got lodged deep into his skull.
‘He was brought to my out-patient department at around 3.30pm, and after seeing the scan report we started the surgery at around 6.30 pm on the same day.’
The man was treated at Anand Rishi Hospital and craniotomy surgery – where a bone flap is removed so the brain can be accessed – was performed to remove the key.
He was discharged three days after the incident and is said to be making a good recovery.
Dr. Markad added: ‘The surgery lasted about three and a half hours, during which we opened part of his skull to remove the lodged key.
‘The victim has since recovered and is doing fine. He was discharged on April 21 evening, and is expected for a follow-up check this week.’
