An Ontario woman feared for her life after a friend’s thrown car keys pierced her cheek near her eye.
Renée Lariviere, 24, tried to grab her car keys, but instead accidentally stuck them in an inch-and-a-half-deep nasal cavity.
The young woman, from Sudbury, told the Daily Mail that at first she couldn’t feel the pain because of the adrenaline.
“At the time, I wasn’t worried about a scar. With care, the scars would disappear. My only concern was whether I was going to lose my sight,” explained the key victim.
The young woman, who was rushed to the hospital by ambulance, said doctors who came from several departments to see the victim could not believe their eyes.
Surgeons were able to extract the key from the cavity to suture the wound. Lucky for her misfortune, the young woman comes out without any scars.
Also, Renee Larivière confirmed that one of the doctors uses her accident photos to show her students that “anything can happen.”
“I think we get so busy in our daily lives that we forget that anything can happen every day and it can go badly,” she said.
