Remember this impalement by rebar? That was also from Brazil. Makes you wonder what kind of reptilian conspiracy this is: “Vicious rebars terrorizing construction workers in Brazil“.
47 year old Francisco Bento Barroso who worked on a construction site in Ladeira Tabajaras, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro fell on the iron rod that pierced through his neck and left him suspended between two walls. His coworkers had to cut the rebar to rescue their dangling friend.
After the incident, Francisco was taken to Miguel Couto Hospital in Topsail while fully conscious and talking with firefighters. He tried to remove the bar from his neck with his own hands but gave in because it was too painful.
The rebar removal surgery took 5 hours. The surgeons are keeping Francisco medicated because risk of infection remains high, however he’s expected to recover.
