A drunk man slipped and fell into a pan and the handle of the pan pierced his face, with four inches lodged in his eye socket.

The horrific accident occurred when the 64-year-old was stumbling around looking for kitchen utensils after having too much to drink. He lost his balance and fell forward towards the kitchen counter where he pierced his eye socket with a looped metal panhandle.

The man managed to call the emergency services and he was rushed by air ambulance to hospital in a critical condition.

Medic Dr Carla Sander, said they x-rayed the skull, cranium and cervical region of the man, adding: “The cooking pan’s handle was positioned 10 centimetres in situ, coming from above, breaking through the right orbital rim.”

Luckily for the man, the panhandle was positioned in such a way that it entered his eye socket just below his right eyeball and missed the brain.

The team of doctors made up by Dr Carla Sander, Dr Ali Kurt, Prof Anton Dunsche and Dr Taha Tolga Sonmez performed emergency surgery lasting several hours. They not only successfully managed to remove the panhandle but also saved the man’s sight.
