An Indian woman is blinded in one eye after the whistle attached
to a pressure cooker shot off the cooking device and lodged into
her skull.

The horrific accident happened as Munda Birsi, 57, was making a
meal with her pressure cooker on Sept. 4. She set the cooker on
the gas stove in her home and went outside to cut hay, according
to SWNS.

The woman, who could not hear the whistle screaming over the hay-
cutter, went back inside roughly an hour later to remove the
cooker from the stovetop. As she did, the steam reportedly
caused the whistle to burst and shoot into her face. The nearly
3-inch object pierced “the skull bone separating her eyes from
her brain,” per SWNS.

Birsi was rushed to a local hospital where a CT scan revealed
the whistle was jammed into her skull near her brain. The object
was lodged so deeply it was not fully visible from the outside,
photos show.

Dr. Ashish Joy Soren with Bhagwan Mahavir Medica Super
Speciality Hospital in Jharkhand, India, told SWNS the surgery
to remove the whistle from the woman’s eye was difficult.

To start, doctors had to “release adhesions around the whistle
and ensure that no bleeding should occur while extricating the
metallic object. We had kept backup plans if blood would spurt,”
he said. "It was a bit difficult to pull out the whistle as
vigorous maneuver would damage the surrounding tissues. We
gently pulled the whistle and packed the wound opening with the
gauze pieces.”

"The surgery was successful and we could save the life of woman,
though her left eye could not be saved,” he added.

Birsi was released from the hospital on Saturday, a day after
the operation to remove the whistle.
