A labourer who fell from the roof of a house on to iron rods piercing through his stomach, returned from the brink of death following timely surgery at a city hospital today.
Three rods pierced his abdomen narrowly missing his liver and kidneys but passing through the colon before coming out of the back, a senior doctor where he was operated on said.
He was taken to the hospital after preliminary check up at a super-speciality hospital at Baruipur and was referred to a hospital in the city, police said.
A five-member team of doctors were formed who quickly conducted a very critical surgery.
Prior to the surgery, the rods were shortened by iron cutting machines following which doctors conducted a two-and-half-hour-long to remove them, the doctor added.
"It was a very critical operation. We had to keep in mind about the possible risks which could have harm other organs of the body while taking out the rods. There was a good amount of blood loss. However, it was a successful surgery," the doctor said.
Sarkar would be now kept under observation, he added.
