Suresh Sakaram, an 8-year-old boy from Pati, India, miraculously survived getting impaled through the chest by a large tree branch. The sharp piece of wood missed his heart by mere millimeters, although he did suffer injuries to his ribs and a lung. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Suresh Sakaram climbed a tree to get some plums for his litter sister, but lost his footing and fell onto a branch below.
It went straight through his chest and out of his back, then snapped off and the boy fell towards the ground.
