Pencil Pierced Girls Eye And Brain

Quote:
A two-year-old girl from Bath has made a full recovery after falling on to a pencil that pierced her eye socket and entered her brain.

Wren Bowell was taken to hospital where surgeons operated for four hours to remove the pencil.

Ian Pople, the consultant neurosurgeon who operated on her, said people who suffered similar injuries had died or suffered permanent brain damage.

Surgeons at Frenchay Hospital said Wren had been "extremely lucky".

The pencil penetrated her right eye socket before lodging 1.5in (3.8cm) into the front lobe of her brain:

Wren, from Peasedown St John, was getting ready for bed at home when she fell over and landed on the pencil she was carrying.

It narrowly missed her eyeball, before lodging 1.5in (3.8cm) into the front lobe of her brain just a millimetre away from a major blood vessel.

"We had to open up the skull first of all to get inside and then we removed bits of fractured bone to be able to pull out the pencil from the brain," said Mr Bowell.

"The pencil had become jammed in by the fractured bits of bone.

"She is extremely lucky and we are very pleased that she has made such an excellent recovery."

The incident happened in March and Wren was released from hospital in April.

Re: Pencil Pierced Girls Eye And Brain

what a lucky child, and hopefully her parents did a check of the house and removed all pencils/pens and anything that could do this again.

Poor kid, she was incredibly lucky not to have been blinded or suffered brain damage. Glad she made a full recovery.

Was she trying to lobotomize herself? Awesome she's alright.

Only time I've seen a pencil sticking out of someone was when a kid smacked me in grade school. I shoved a pencil through her lip and into her gums, snapped it off and smiled.
