A 10-year old primary school kid nearly got himself killed in a freak incident yesterday. According to a report purportedly from Kota Kinabalu education department, the year-four kid was rushing to catch up school bus.

In the rush, he ran into a drain cover made of a welded iron rod that was almost detached from it frame. The loose rod nearly two meter long poked through his mouth out on his right cheek. Had it struck other part of his body – it definitely had been fatal.

The Fire and Rescue Department then was immediately called in to help. They couldn’t removed the rod from his head as one of it ends still attached to it frame. They simply cut it off, then rush him to Likas Likas Hospital with the rod still attached.

The school had since been instructed to give local education office full report of the incident, according a statement by Kota Kinabalu education office.
