From BoingBoing:

Seen above is an X-ray of Shafique el-Fahkri, a 20-year-old student who was attacked outside of a Melbourne, Australia nightclub in January. During a brawl, another 20-year-old, Liam Peart, threw a metal-framed chair at Fahkri. The chair leg went through Fahkri’s eye socket and down into his neck. Amazingly, Fahkri not only survived but did not lose his eye, which was pushed to the side by the chair leg.

  1. A technical note…

    What you see is a 3D Rendered image constructed from a CT Scan.

    Sorry… couldn’t let that one slide

  2. In other words, that is not an X-ray.
