After a violent dispute at a party, a Brazilian motorcycle taxi driver somehow managed to drive two hours to the hospital with an 11-inch knife sticking out of his skull.
The blade barely missed puncturing 39-year-old Juacelo Nunes’ left eye, passing through his mouth into the right side of his jaw, reported G1 news.
“The knife passed through several nerves and veins, structures that can quickly kill a patient,” Gilberto Albuquerque, the director of the hospital in Teresina, said.
Following its removal, the knife was handed over to police, who are currently investigating the incident.
Aside from being stabbed in the head, he also suffered knife injuries to his shoulder, chest and throat during the brawl.
“I did not see the moment of the stabbing, but at no time fainted and remained conscious even with pain,” Nunes said. “I thought I would die and only came to believe when I saw what happened to me, because if someone told me I would not have believed it.”
Surprisingly, Nunes is doing just fine and expected to make a full recovery.
