A Sichuan man has been making the rounds on Weibo for looking unfazed after having his head impaled by a knife that fell from a balcony. Looks like he’s got steel in the balls as well as the skull.
The knife had reportedly fallen from an apartment, where it was reportedly used for gardening or maintenance. It reportedly struck the man, surnamed Xiao, while he was walking by the gate to the compound, and lodged 12cm deep into his brain.
Xiao glances nonchalantly at his x-ray which shows the knife buried practically up to the handle in his skull
Said Xiao of the incident,
“When I passed the compound entrance towards River Street, about 200 or 300 meters, I suddenly feel that my head get heavy. I realized that it was the weight of the knife in my head. I walked back more than a 100 meters but my head hurt and I feel faint.”
Xiao was driven to the hospital shortly thereafter. Doctors say he will be fine.
Xiao has drawn comparisons to Jilin provinces “Calm Brother,” who became famous for looking similarly stone-faced after a knife impaled his skull.
