GRAPHIC CONTENT: This 10-year-old boy cheated death

Geez! 10-year-old Aman Vishwakarma, from Kaushambi district in Uttar Pradesh state, India cheated death after he fell 12 feet off a roof and impaled himself on a four foot long steel rod - miraculously missing his vital organs.

Aman, fell off the roof of his family home when it collapsed and gave way underneath him, sending him crashing to the ground.

He fell on top of a steel rebar, which entered his body by piercing his inner thigh and went through the length of his torso and exited his upper back, missing his spine by millimetres.

Surgeons worked for four hous to remove the metal building spike from his body.
It had torn a major blood vessel, pierced his bowel and diaphram, grazed his spine and possibly ruptured his lungs - causing two litres of blood to build up in his abdomen.

It took a team of six hospital staff to remove the rod from the small boy without permanently damaging major blood vessels and organs.

Dr Rajeev Singh, the 'hero' surgeon who operated on Aman, said he believed before the operation that saving him was 'practically impossible'.

'His condition was very critical,' Dr Singh said. 'His blood pressure was zero. If the patient was not operated within hours of accident, he could collapsed.'
Aman, who now uses a colostomy bag, has not been able play his beloved cricket or go to school since the accident in October.

A British doctor told MailOnline the boy had been 'millimetres' from death – and now faces a lifetime of medical complications.

His mother Kamla Devi, 30, collapsed when she saw him lying on the ground with the spike protruding from his body.

Kamla told MailOnline: 'They took me to the hospital to see my son. I had completely given up on his chances of survival.

'So I couldn't believe when the doctor told me he was alive.'

She added: 'It's a miracle. It's no exaggeration to compare the doctors with gods. If not gods, they are god-sent to us.'
