A young boy was rushed to a hospital after getting a pencil stuck in his behind, doctors in Australia said.

Around 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning, paramedics were called to the Fairvale Public School in Fairfield, where they treated the 6-year-old child for an injury in his behind.

The child was transported by ambulance to the Westmead Hospital, where he is said to be in stable condition.

According to the police investigation, the student, who was not identified, got a pencil stuck in his behind after sitting down on it.

In other pencil news, a man lived with a pencil lodged in his head for the past 15 years without even knowing, according to a statement released by hospital officials in Germany.

German doctors said that the Afghan man, who for years suffered from headaches, runny nose and eye problems, had a 10-centimeter or four-inch pencil lodged in his head.

Surgeons at the University Hospital of Aachen took out the pencil from the 24-year-old, and he is recovering. The pencil injured the man’s sinuses and right eye socket.

When asked how the pencil got in his head, he recalled having fallen once as a child and suffering a severe nosebleed.

The pencil was noticed only after a thorough medical examination by computer tomography, which is a technique for image scanning.
