These horrific pictures show how a builder became impaled by a metal rod through his mouth – but survived.

The victim, whose surname is Kan, said he was working on a building site in Xiaogan, Hubei Province, China, when he heard a noise above him.

When he looked up, the huge iron rod went straight into him, through his mouth and down into his back.

These incredible x-ray images show just how far the bar penetrated his body.

Doctors said the rod had narrowly missed a vital artery in his chest which, if damaged, would have killed him.

The bar was removed during a four-hour operation and Mr Kan is no recovering in hospital.
