A computer tomography scan provided by the Park-Klinik Weissensee in Berlin on Tuesday shows a pencil inside a woman’s head. After being plagued for 55 years with the torment of a pencil lodged in her head, a German woman has finally had it removed. Margaret Wegner, now 59, was 4 years old when she fell while carrying the eight centimeter-long (3.15 inch-long) pencil, which went through her cheek and into her brain. With advances in surgical procedures, it could finally be removed at the Park-Klinik.
