According to China Press, the end of the chopstick could be felt at the back of the 3-year-old's head

Nonetheless, the chopstick, which went through her tonsils into her pharynx, did not cause bleeding in the girl's mouth. 

Doctors revealed that she was lucky the chopstick did not go through any of her vital organs

TVBS reported that it had only injured the girl's soft tissue in her skull. 

Following successful removal of the chopstick, the 3-year-old is currently in stable condition and under observation. 

According to China Press, the chopstick was left in the toddler's head for over eight hours before the surgery began as her parents were referred to a local hospital by a clinic.
