Zhang Bin, aged 15-years-old, said he invited a group of teenage boys to his house, and one bought the 50cm large sword with him.
“Three classmates came to visit me at home and one of them bought a sword. He stood 3 – 4 metres away. I don’t know how the sword could fly to me and stab into my head. I felt sharp pains and a large amount of blood streaming down.”
He visited the local hospital but they could not help, stating they were too inexperienced. He was forced to travel for 4 hours to Changsha, where more experienced surgeons very carefully removed the embedded sword.
Afterwards, the surgery chief said; “Luckily, the knife didn’t touch the arteries in the skull and key nerves, otherwise it would have been a different story.”
