Car driver John Helliwell speared by metal rail
A man who was speared through his body by a metal rail in a car crash has praised hospital staff for saving his life.
The rail punched through the back of John Helliwell, 32, from Gowerton, Swansea, and out of his abdomen.
As the car was still moving, the rail came straight back out of his body. He also fractured his pelvis.
Doctors at Morriston Hospital said Mr Helliwell's injuries were bad but could have been a lot worse.
