A woman was left with an eyeliner pencil lodged in her eye after the taxi she was travelling in slammed into a truck while she was putting on her make-up. The woman, who is in her 20s, was sitting in the back of the cab in a slow-moving traffic jam in Bangkok, Thailand, on the way to see her friends.
While in traffic, she began applying eyeliner but the cab driver then crashed into a pick-up truck in front, jolting the woman forward. At this, she hit the seat in front, accidentally thrusting the pencil into her left eye.
Fortunately, the pencil missed the vital parts of her eye and her sight will not be affected, the medics who treated her said. Paramedic Thanabodee Sabbodi said while the crash was minor the “freak accident” had caused half of the pencil to plunge into the eye socket of the young woman, who has not been identified.
The girl was still conscious and taken to the Rajavithi Hospital where medics removed the pencil without any lasting injuries.
