The poor man was taken to a hospital in Ba Ria-Vung Tau on October 16 by two men who left him there without providing any information of the case.

Doctors in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Hospital conducted a CT scan which showed chopsticks in the man’s brain.

They then transferred him to Cho Ray Hospital on the same day for surgery.

Surgeons at Cho Ray Hospital and their counterparts from the Eye Hospital performed a four hour surgery to remove the chopsticks from the man’s skull.
