Weverton Silva, 10, was called a medical miracle after he was impaled with a 2 foot long metal spike and survived.
The young boy was picking guava fruits on Saturday in the Brazilian city of Macae when he fell from the tree. He landed on an iron bar, which punctured the left side of his body under his armpit and emerged near his right ear.
The bar missed all of Silva’s vital organs and his basic arterial routes. It was removed in one piece after five hours of surgery.
“It is difficult to arrive at a hospital with such a situation and survive,” Dr. Rodrigo Chicralla said. “I think it was just God.”
