Iron rod pierces man’s stomach; docs save him
A construction worker, a father of six children, survived after a 4-feet iron rod pierced his stomach when he fell off a high-rise in Faridabad last week.
Dannu Ram, 45, a resident of Vaishali in Bihar, was working in a high-rise in Greater Faridabad when he fell off the third floor of the building and a 4-feet rod of 20 mm width pierced his stomach and came out of the other side.
The employers rushed him to Sarvodaya Hospital and Research Centre, Faridabad, where a team of doctors successfully removed the iron rod. The doctors said that Dannu Ram’s shoulder was also badly injured in the incident.
“The iron rod had penetrated his intestines and injured multiple locations in his abdomen. It was an unusual case but our doctors handled it very carefully,” said Dr Rakesh Gupta, chairman of Sarvodaya Hospital and Research Centre.
“We had to remove the injured parts of the intestines and reconstruct them. We also had to remove the spleen and tail of pancreas because they were damaged by the rod,” Dr Pankaj said.
Dannu had come to Faridabad an year ago. His family consists of his wife, four daughters and two sons. “The employer is bearing the medical expenses of Dannu,” the doctors said.
