Surgeons are helping a teenager save his neck by shortening it.

Fu Wengui, 15, of Beijing, is preparing to go under the knife because he's reportedly caused immense pain by the three extra vertebrae in his neck.

The teen has 10 vertebrae in his neck while the average person has seven, according to Quirky China, which released photos of him at the hospital. The vertebrae compress his nerves, making it difficult for him to walk.When he was six he was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis and abnormal chest frame," Wengui's father, Fu Genyou, told agency.

Congenital scoliosis is a spinal deformity caused by abnormally formed vertebrae, and usually occurs in early development, according to the Scoliosis Research Society. Wengui's surgery will reduce the size of his neck and hopefully enhance movement and reduce pain.

A Beijing-based charity will sponsor his surgery at Chaoyang Hospital, which is working on a treatment plan, according to Quirky News' press release.

"I just hope I can have a normal neck," Wengui said

Mr Ho, 50, was dismantling a property in Guangxi Province in China when a steel rod fell from above. Miraculously, he managed to survive the rod's impact, entering through the right side of his forehead and exiting through the left side of his jaw.
Paramedics called to treat Mr Ho were astounded to find him entirely conscious and lucid, despite the inch-thick rod embedded inside him.

After having fire fighters removed most of the metal bar outside his head, Mr Ho was moved to a larger hospital for further treatment. Complex emergency surgery allowed doctors to remove the remainder successfully and staff say Mr Ho is recovering well and out of danger.
