Having a bad day? Woman hospitalised after porcupine embeds 200 spikes in her head

How unlucky can you get?

A Brazilian woman was hospitalised this week after a spiky porcupine fell from the sky and landed on her head.

Housewife Sandra Nabucco was left in agony after the clumsy rodent embedded more than 200 of its sharp quills in her scalp.

The porcupine apparently dropped from a telephone wire while the 52-year-old walked her dog in Gávea, an affluent neighbourhood south of Rio de Janeiro.

‘It was a huge shock. I felt a thud on my head and then felt spines with my hands. The pain was enormous,’ she told Brazlian TV network Globo.
