A Chinese construction worker has cheated death after a 3-foot-long steel rod speared into his body from his groin during an accident.

The man, known by his surname Zhu, had the metal bar lodged in his torso after falling onto it from a 10ft-high platform at a construction site in China’s eastern province Jiangsu.

Mr Zhu survived the horrifying accident after doctors performed a three-hour operation to remove the long pole.

The accident occurred in March in the city of Nantong. It was brought to light this week after the patient returned to the hospital on Monday to thank the surgeons for saving his life.

Mr Zhu was working on a construction site on March 27 when he accidentally fell from the height, according to the Nantong Second People’s Hospital.

A picture shows Mr Zhu with the blood-stained steel rod sticking out of his body after the man was rushed to the hospital.

The construction worker was immediately scheduled to undergo surgery after doctors saw over two-third of the metal bar had skewered across Mr Zhu’s abdomen on an X-ray scan.

The medics said that the patient was in a life-threatening condition as the long pole caused heavy bleeding and could have damaged his organs.

After a three-hour operation, the surgeons successfully removed the steel rod from the construction worker’s body.

The metal bar measured 90 centimetres (2ft 5in) long and 2 centimetres (0.79 inch) thick.
