The fellow was out for a stroll when he noticed his head felt odd, and heavy.
He went on with his walk until another man, looking amazed, pointed to 57-year-old Xiao Yunzhi’s head.
Sticking out of the top of his head was a five-inch kitchen knife that had fallen eight floors from the balcony of a building before hitting Xiao.
"It was terrifying to see," Xiao’s sister told The Telegraph. "The knife handle was sticking out of the top."
The knife didn’t penetrate Xiao’s skull and was later removed at a hospital in Guangyuan, Sichuan Province.
Police say the owner of the knife said he left it in a flower pot and had no idea it had blown off.
Xiao’s sister said the man, Mr. Wu has visited her brother in the hospital and had “paid some of his medical bills.”
