While at a local bar in Chihuahua in Northwest Mexico, an aggressive man came in looking for trouble. The man tried to start a fight with Monroy and grew so aggressive he took the scissors he had in his pocket and stabbed Monroy in the head. Thankfully he's okay and let's just say he'll have a great story to tell!

10 X-ray showing a rod impaled in Ha Wei's head in Guangzhou, China. A Chinese man has survived after getting a long welding rod impaled through his head. At the time of the accident Ha Wei was on a ladder welding a rain canopy. His cousin comments: 'He fell down from the ladder, he stayed on the ground for one or two minutes and said he was fine'. But when Wei was turned over there was a long welding rod protruding from his head. He was rushed to hospital where doctors undertook a five hour surgery to remove the 19cm long rod, which had penetrated 14cm into his head. Chief surgeon Wu Taihua said: 'The rod is only 2mm from the vena and 5mm from the neck artery. If any of the veins were injured, the patient may die at the scene.' Doctor Wu added that the rod went through the patient's brain and didn't stop until it hit the back wall of his skull. 'Usually the chance of survival is very low.He was very lucky.‘ China News/REX FEATURES

18 A woman can finally breathe easily after doctors removed a bullet from her head after it had been there for a suspected 48 years. Zhao went to hospital in Shenyang, China, recently due to chronic rhinitis. 'My nose was always having pus, but from 10 years ago, I had breathing difficulties and headaches, which made me suffer a lot.' CAT scans revealed that there was a metal item in her nostril. Doctors used an endoscope to remove it and were shocked to discover that the metallic object was a bullet. Zhao believes that she was shot 48 years ago. She says: 'It was in 1967 when I was only 14. I was walking on the footpath and suddenly felt a sharp pain on my right temple. I thought I was hit by a pebble and there was blood.' At home her family simply cleaned and bandaged the wound and it eventually closed up. Zhao says: 'I should thank the bullet that it didn't take my life 48 years ago, otherwise I wouldn't have my family and my life now.' HAP/Quirky China News/REX
