Metal rod impales Australian worker through the forehead

A construction worker has been impaled by a metal rod through his forehead while working at a Sydney work site - reports ITN News.

Kieran Dodge, 19, was clearing rubble from the site with an excavator when the bar snapped and went through his forehead.

He was given morphine and managed to hold the metal rod while ambulance workers freed him from the cabin.

Dodge's work mates were praised by the ambulance staff for not attempting to remove the rod.

"They did everything correctly," said ambulance inspector, Mark Hayes.

"They kept it in situ, they kept him calm and they called us immediately."

Dodge is reportedly currently in a stable condition in hospital.
