Surgeons in UK have saved a 34-year-old man’s life after they successfully removed a 15 inch-long twig which had impaled his neck.

Adrian Wood, from Werrington, Cambridgeshire, fell off his bike on a ride and the tree branch skewered him. It ripped through his jugular vein, voicebox and oesophagus, ending up just two millimetres from an artery.

Adrian picked himself up and walked along an alleyway with the 2 inch-wide branch stuck in his neck.
