A 40-year-old truck driver in China was recently involved in a huge pile-up, and took an 18-foot tree branch through the CHEST. It also pierced his SEAT, so paramedics had to cut the entire seat out to get him to the hospital, and there are crazy photos of it online. Luckily, the branch missed his heart by a few INCHES. And as long as he doesn't develop an infection, he'll make a full recovery.
