Emergency crews rescue man impaled on bed headboard

Emergency crews in Australia worked for 30 minutes before freeing a man who was impaled on a bed headboard.

Crews were called to a home in Reid in Canberra's east at about 9am on Sunday, the ACT Emergency Services Agency said in a statement.

Paramedics and rescue firefighters found the 60-year-old man impaled in the stomach on an ornamental bed headboard.

They worked for half-an-hour to free the man before taking him to Canberra Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
