A Chinese toddler is expected to fully recover after he shoved a chopstick so far up his nose that it penetrated his brain.

Huang Zicheng, 2, reportedly shoved the chopstick up far enough to penetrate three inches into his brain, but it did not cause nerve or artery damage, Metro reported.

Brain surgeons worked for four hours to remove the chopstick. The boy’s father said he heard his son screaming while he was doing chores.

“I turned around and was shocked to find that the long stick had gone into his head from his nose,” the unidentified man told Metro.

Doctors took CAT scans to assess damage, but expect the boy to fully recover.
