A 20 year old lady who was applying make up in the moving car, mistakenly stabbed herself in the eye with eyebrow pencil after the car suddenly stopped when it hit a truck.
The incident happened in Bangkok Thailand. The young lady, who was sitting in the back of the cab in a slow-moving traffic jam was on her way to see her friends before the tragic incident occurred.
The paramedic who were immediately called to the scene said;
‘We received a call and there was one injured female with an eyebrow pencil inserted into her left eye.
‘She was in a lot of pain when we came but she could still talk to us and explain what happened. There was not a lot of blood but she had a small nose bleed.’
Fortunately, the injury inflicted by the tragic incident was not a lasting injury as the pencil did not affect any important part of the eyes as it got stuck. The girl was still conscious and taken to the Rajavithi Hospital where medics removed the pencil.
