Iron Bar Removed from Builder's Head

Eduardo Leite, a 24-year-old construction worker was hit with an iron bar that fell from the fifth floor. The iron bar impaled his hard hat near the vertex of his skull and exited between his eyes. The iron bar has since been removed by the surgical team.

The report from the neurosurgeon suggests that the bar penetrated a part of the brain with no specific, major known function. However, it remains to be seen what, if any, damages will manifest themselves in this modern day Phineas Gauge incident until after he has had time to recover.
