Renée Lariviere, 24, from Ontario, Canada, was just going to take her group of friends to McDonald’s for dinner when things suddenly went wrong, according to news agency Kennedy News and Media.
When one of her friends threw her car key just before she got into the car, in an attempt to accept, she stabbed herself with the key. Improbably, she blew deeply into her cheek.
– My friend looked at me and exclaimed: “God, keep calm!” says the 24-year-old.
Argued with the wife – I woke up like this
Lariviere herself did not understand how serious it was until she saw herself in the mirror.
– I felt constant pressure, but it felt like I was being punched in the face. Perhaps it was because the adrenaline made you feel no pain. I actually didn’t believe him, so I went to the bathroom to look at myself in the mirror, she explains.
When she saw the key stuck into the skin between her eyes and nose, her first thought was that she was going to go blind.
– I do not believe that
In great panic, the group of friends called an ambulance, which took the friend to the hospital.
There I took a CT scan, before the surgeon took out the corkscrew and sewed up the deep wound.
X-rays show that the sharpened corkscrew went deep into the left nasal cavity of the 24-year-old.
Lariviere claims that the doctors must have been very fascinated by the bloody injury, which must be said to be of a rare kind. Now the photos are being used as an example that “anything can happen,” according to the young woman.
– The doctors were very surprised. They came from other departments to see, because they did not believe it. Someone asked if he could take pictures and show them to his students. She explains that he worked as an emergency physician, and wanted to show them that anything could happen.
– I’m not a gold digger
– was terrified
Fortunately, the 24-year-old got away with his eyesight intact. Amazingly, she also had no scarring after the doctors patched her cheek together.
– I don’t care much about getting a scar. They can go away if you get the right treatment. What I worried about was whether I would go blind, she says, adding:
– I never lost my sight, but I was horrified when they took out the key. I was also afraid that something might happen if I moved. But fortunately that did not happen.
Lariviere now encourages others to be more careful about minor mishaps in everyday life:
– When I look back, I think it is absolutely impossible for something like this to happen. What are the odds? I was also lucky, because if I had hit somewhere else, I would have sustained serious injuries.
– I was so relieved when I got answers on the CT scan and the doctors told me everything looked fine. People should definitely be more careful. Incidents like this happen all the time, and I don’t think we understand it. And she concludes that we are too busy with everyday life, so we don’t think about how much can happen and how much it can hurt us.
