Certain things are never meant to be left where children can reach them but despite several precautions curious kids may land themselves in trouble. Among several things children may get their hands on, scissors are definitely not something to be toyed with.
A two-year-old from China learned this the hard way when he ended up stabbing himself in the face while running around with his mother’s scissors. Doctors at a children’s hospital had to carry out an urgent procedure after scans revealed 2.3 inches of the blade lodged in his right cheek.
The boy was running around when he tripped and fell with his face landing on the sharp object. The scissor had pierced his face between a major artery and his eye socket but was removed without complications and little bleeding.
The child is in a steady state but will be in hospital for few days. His mother said she did see him with the scissors but didn’t stop him right away and the accident took place seconds later.
