A construction worker from Central India has managed to survive a horrific workplace incident after being impaled in the skull and undergoing emergency surgery.

The 21 year tradie fell into a well at a worksite and an iron rod passed through his skull from the right temporal region of his brain to the left frontal region.

The man was rushed to hospital and underwent a 90 minute surgery.

The man is lucky to be alive but this incident is an example of the consequences of a lack of fall protection.
