A Chinese man has suffered a lucky escape after a knife fell from the sky and landed in the top of his head.
Xiao Yunzhi, 57, was out for a walk in his hometown of Guangyuan, Sichaun Province, before a five-inch kitchen knife fell from the top of a high-rise apartment block.
Even more unbelievably, Mr Xiao did not immediately notice the impact, despite reporting that his head started to feel heavy.
However, as soon as the problem was pointed out by the astonished local tobacconist, pain rushed though Mr Xiao’s body as bemused onlookers called for an ambulance.
He was still being treated by local intensive care on Monday after the knife which was lodged in his head was finally removed.
The man’s sister was quick to the scene and explained the horror.
“It was terrifying to see,” foreign media reports.
“The knife handle was sticking out of the top.”
“He is stable but is not fully out of danger yet,” his sister said. “He cannot use the phone yet in case it has an effect on his condition.”
The knife reportedly belonged to a man named Mr Wu, who said that he left his kitchen utensil on one of his balcony flowerpots, never imagining that it could have fallen off.
“They told the police that the wind must have blown it off,” Miss Xiao added. “They have already come to visit my brother in the hospital and have paid some of his medical bills.”
