The 16-year-old Rens van de Kruijs got a the scare of this life this weekend when a steel pin was pierced through his forehead at work.

When he tried to stop a wheelbarrow containing a concrete block, he slipped and fell with his head against a pin from the foundation.

The pin was cut on the spot. It went in just above his eyebrow. Fortunately, there is no permanent damage, reported his mother to Omroep Brabant. In the hospital the pin could be removed within five minutes and the wound cleaned.

It wasn't until Monday before Van de Kruijs recovered from the shock, and realized just how lucky he was, concluded his mother.
