The bar fell from the fifth floor of a building under construction, went through Leite's hard hat, entered the back of his skull and exited between his eyes, Essinger said, adding: 'It really was a miracle' that Leite survived.
Leite was conscious when he arrived at the hospital and narrated what had happened. He was lucid and showed no negative consequences after the operation.
What a lucky break! He sure cheated death.
