A spokesman from the fire service said: “He was playing a game with his friends in the woods, pretending to be soldiers with toy guns. He jumped over a log, rolled and ended up with a metal spike through his knee.Which happens in real wars. I guess he doesn’t really want it that real, though?
“It was decided that the metal spike should stay there until he was in hospital. It could have been a lot worse, it could have hit an artery or his head and he could have died.”
It seems impalement is a bit of a problem in the area.
Just over a month ago a cyclist was impaled through his chest by a branch as he cycled down a road in Pulborough.Someone should sort it out. ‘elf n’ safety, innit?
