Eye-liner pen lodged in woman’s eye after taxi collision
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.
