You'd never see this in the US.  Not because it does not happen, but because it violates HIPAA.

I was looking for the pic of the old Star Trek bridge where Kirk and Sulu and the other guys on the deck are recoiling in horror with their arms up, but for the life of me all my searches failed. You win, though.

Yeah, sure, that's how she got the nickname. We all believe that.

In China, YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE HIPPA!!!

At the very least, the construction company violated OSHA rules and regulations.  When the OSHA inspectors get on the case you can be sure heads will roll (or will receive a bullet to the back of heads).

Throw yourself at the ground and miss.

OSHA? Every job site I've seen in China used bamboo scaffolding with flimsy wood planks for walking.

Worker safety is no concern when you can replace people so easily.

They were measuring the rod with antique vernier calipers ? They're still around, I thought they all went digital ?

My sarcasm detector has low levels of caffeine and needs recharging. Perhaps I should switch to a vernier version...

Digital devices are less accurate than the vernier. Not because of the tech, but because they made people lazy on the metrology front. I won't use the digital stuff. My calipers and micrometers are all vernier.

What pisses me off is that they were holding the calipers at an angle to get that nice 1 in. mark. It was a 3/4" rebar rod, not 1 in. I feel bad for the woman and that is quite traumatic an experience, but let's not hype up an already big story.

I've seen that style of vernier before. You can't get a good reading because the wedge part means you'll have some parallax worth of doubt, unlike an 80 year old Starrett with a flat vernier.

I went through all the phases too, vernier, dial vernier, and digital. Still like to old fashioned way, verniers.

I wonder if the blunt trauma caused by a direct impact on one of those things would be worse than being skewered.  Most impacts wouldn't be direct hits and you would deflect off instead of partially skewered though.

I did see somebody on a documentary about weird medical cases and there was this college girl who fell out a window and somehow skewered herself through the butt cheeks on a pointed metal fence. Upside down, no less.

Some nice frat boys (yes, they exist) held her up enough so she wouldn't slide down any further on the fence while someone called an ambulance.

She's was okay after they got her down and got the fence out of her butt cheeks, she just has some interesting scars on her butt and an entertaining story to tell.
