Bhaskar Ram, 33, received the bizarre injury in a fight with two men at his workplace in Kalyani, India (pictured). Local reports said he was rushed to a nearby hospital in the early hours of November 28, but had to be transferred to another specialised hospital over 40 miles away – where a specialist surgeon was able to remove the trident from his neck

Staff at the Kolkata NRS Medical College in West Bengal had to wake up specialist surgeon Dr Pranabashish Banerjee to remove the weapon at 3am.

After an hour and a half long operation, the trident was eventually removed from Mr Ram’s neck, and he is said to have made a remarkable recovery.

Local sources said he told doctors he was not in any pain or discomfort.

Dr Banerjee, an associate professor at the NRS Medical College said: ‘There was no sign of blood or injury which took me to surprise.

‘Only traces of blood were found outside his mouth.

‘A team of doctors was formed. We first conducted a supportive surgery by placing a tracheostomy tube in the airway for breathing and then started our surgery,’ he said.

Further footage showed the surgeons clad in green scrubs carefully pulling the blood-covered trident out of the man’s neck.

‘None of the vital structures were injured as the rod had miraculously missed the vital organs that included the carotid, internal jugular vein, trachea, oesophagus, larynx, vertebra and the spinal cord,’ Dr Banerjee said.

‘The patient has recovered well and we are gradually removing the supporting tubes.

‘The tracheotomy tube was removed and the nasogastric tube will be removed once the MRI report arrives.’

Earlier this year, it was reported that an eight-year-old girl made a miracle recovery after an iron rod went through her jaw and out of her mouth, when she tripped and fell at a building site in the Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh.
