Munda Birsi, a 57-year-old woman, was blinded in one eye when the whistle of a pressure cooker shot off and lodged into her skull. She was rushed to Bhagwan Mahavir Medica Superspeciality Hospital in Ranchi, where oculoplastic surgeon Dr Ashish Joy Soren performed a complex operation to remove the bullet-sized bit of metal. The nearly 3-inch object pierced the skull bone separating her eye from the brain. Although the surgery was successful, her left eye could not be saved. Birsi was released on Saturday from the hospital, a day after the surgery was performed. She is now in a stable condition.
