Altogether Now.

ANDERSON, Indiana (AP) -- A woman survived being impaled by a 12-foot metal fence post that pierced through her mouth and came out the back of her neck in a car accident, authorities said.

Emergency crews had to saw off part of the 1 1/2-inch thick fence rail to free Alejandra Martinez, who was still awake when crews arrived at the scene. Fire officials were shocked to find her alive.

"Talk about having an angel as a co-pilot," Fire Chief J.R. Rosencrans said. "On her rearview mirror she had a picture of the Madonna. You can tell she is a religious person."

Martinez, 28, was in critical condition late Monday, recovering from surgery, officials said.
Wow. I guess I ought to reconsider the power of Shanghai Surprise.

Our Blessed Lady Of Impalement Survival, don't fail me now.
