The Nation - - AROUND THAILAND -

A woman in Bangkok suf­fered an eye in­jury af­ter pok­ing her­self with her eye-liner when the taxi she was trav­el­ling in came to a sud­den stop. She was rushed to a hos­pi­tal.

The un­named woman had been ap­ply­ing makeup in the back of the taxi when it col­lided with a pickup truck near the Din Daeng in­ter­sec­tion at 5.20pm on Tuesday evening.

When res­cue work­ers ar­rived at the scene they found al­most the whole pen­cil lodged in her eye.

The woman was still con­scious, de­spite blood run­ning down her nose. She had been trav­el­ling from the Mor Chit bus ter­mi­nal to Pratu­nam when the ac­ci­dent oc­curred.

Me­dia re­ported that doc­tors man­aged to safely re­move the pen­cil and de­scribed the woman’s con­di­tion as sta­ble.

She was ex­pected to make a full re­cov­ery with no last­ing dam­age to her eye, doc­tors said.
