Woman Walks 7 Miles After Getting Impaled In Neck By Stick

Woman Walks 7 Miles After Getting Impaled In Neck By Stick

A peasant woman in China walked seven miles to get a hospital with a massive stick impaled in her neck.

"I knew I had to do it, that if I relied on anyone else to help I would have died in the field," said Su Liyu, 70.

The woman, a poor farmer in the remote Wangxi township in south-western China's Sichuan province, had no mobile phone and no emergency number to dial.

"I had no choice but to walk," she said. "It was that or die, and I thought I was too young to die."

Liyu was working in a field when a branch she was pushing away bounced back, and speared into her neck.

"It wasn't too painful but I could feel it was deep. Certainly too deep for me to pull out on my own," she said.

On the seven-mile walk to a road where she was able to get a lift to the hospital she came across her niece who was horrified at her injury and accompanied her the rest of the way and helped her flag down a car. From the local hospital she was transferred to the Quxian People’s Hospital and then again Kangcheng Hospital in the city of Dazhou where she underwent a two-hour operation to remove the stick.

According to doctor Weng Zhang who operated on Liyu, there are lots of important organs in the neck. He added: "Luckily, the stick didn’t badly harm them or strike the artery. She was a very lucky and a very brave lady."
