Surgeons from the eastern Indian city of Ranchi have successfully operated
Surgeons from the eastern Indian city of Ranchi have successfully operated on a 5-year-old boy who was impaled on a metal rod after falling off a roof, the Pioneer newspaper said on Friday.

Mihir Kumar fell from the roof of a three-story building while playing with his friends. The 1.8-meter (6-foot) pole ran through the child's abdomen, leaving 2.5-cm (1-inch) wounds just under his ribs on each side of his body.

The boy was taken to hospital in serious condition with his liver, pancreas, intestines and bile duct being affected. The bar also damaged the boy's portal vein, causing severe blood loss.

"The whole surgery took about three hours," doctor Sandeep Aggarwal was quoted as saying. "Mihir is out of danger, his vitals are normal. He is likely to be discharged after a week."

Mihir's condition is now described as stable, though doctors say the next three days will be crucial.

"It is a miracle, Dr. Aggarwal has given my son a new lease of life," the boy's father said.
