shot through the face by a misfiring archer who lodged a 28-inch arrow through her cheek.Medics had to call firefighters to save the longbow victim as the arrow was so tough it required specialist equipment to take it out.

The unnamed patient was filmed being treated at a hospital in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, Northwest China, with the arrow clearly sticking out either side of her face.

Once the middle-aged woman was rushed to hospital, she could not even receive a full CT scan as the arrow was so long that it left her unable to fit.

Fortunately the fire service was on hand to use heavy duty bolt cutters to help remove the centimetre-thick steel arrow shaft which penetrated just beneath her right eye.A shocking snap of the victim on a hospital bed shows just how close the arrow head came to her temple which would have almost certainly ended in graver circumstances.
