A construction worker had a lucky escape after he fell from a building site and was impaled on two massive iron rods - which missed his heart by an INCH.

Rajendra Pal, 21, was working on the roof of a building in Mumbai when he slipped and fell onto iron rods below, one of which went straight through his liver.

He was rushed to hospital where a three-hour operation was performed to remove the 12mm rods.

Rajendra, from West Bengal, had only arrived in Mumbai two days earlier, a relative said.
