Young woman’s horror injury shows why you shouldn’t apply make-up in moving car

A young woman showed why you shouldn’t put make-up on in a moving car when she stabbed an eyeliner pencil into her eye.

The woman, aged in her 20s, was sitting in the back of a taxi in slow-moving traffic in Bangkok, Thailand on Tuesday afternoon as she applied some eyeliner.

But she had to be rushed to hospital after the driver accidentally shunted into the back of a pick-up truck, causing the woman to jolt forward with the pencil still in her hand.

She hit the seat in front of her and the pencil was rammed into her skull, just missing her brain.

Miraculously, her sight has been left unaffected, according to medics who treated her.

Paramedic Thanabodee Sabbodi said the crash was minor but the ”freak accident” had caused half of the pencil to plunge into the eye socket of the young woman, who has not been identified.

He said: ”The crash happened at 5.20pm in Din Daeng area of Bangkok while the lady was putting on make-up on her way outside for the evening.

”We received a call and there was one injured female with an eyebrow pencil inserted into her left eye.

”She was in a lot of pain when we came but she could still talk to us and explain what happened. There was not a lot of blood but she had a small nose bleed.”

The girl was still conscious and taken to the Rajavithi Hospital where medics removed the pencil without any lasting injuries.

Thanabodee added: ”The rescue team and the doctors did a great job to help the victim.

"This should be a warning to women who do their make-up while cars are still running because accidents can always happen.

”This was a strange accident and unexpected but nobody can predict these incidents.

"We have to be prepared.”
